  1. Prepare corn bread according to the package directions. Cool and crumble enough to measure 2 cups; set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to paper towels; drain, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings. Crumble bacon and set aside.
  3. To the drippings, add the celery, green pepper and onion. Saute for 2-3 minutes or until tender. Remove from the heat; set aside.
  4. In a saucepan, melt 1/2 cup butter. Stir in the milk, corn, jalapeno, pimientos, sugar, salt, vegetable mixture and bacon. Add 1 cup corn bread crumbs. Cook for 8-10 minutes or until heated through.
  5. Transfer to a greased 8-in. square baking dish. Melt the remaining butter; toss with the remaining crumbs. Sprinkle on top of batter. Bake at 350° for 18-20 minutes or until bubbles around the edges and is golden brown. Yield: 8 servings.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
