With a little help from a boxed mix and a can of green chilies, you'll have no trouble baking a pan of this sweet moist corn bread. Serve these thick slices alongside bowls of your family's favorite soup or chili. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
“'Busy' is my middle name,“ writes Terri Keeney of Greeley, Colorado, so she uses this incredibly easy corn bread to simplify her meals so she can get back to working, volunteering, and keeping her fast-paced family's schedule running as smoothly as possible.
My husband says this recipe is close enough to the corn bread his mother used to make, so I consider it a winner. His criteria were to "put butter on the corn bread without it crumbling to pieces" and "to be able to break it up into a glass of milk without it turning to mush."
I found this recipe in a cookbook and lightened it up by using skim milk, less oil, egg whites and reduced-fat cheese. It's moist and mildly flavored with canned chilies. —Tena Edyvean of Rapid City, South Dakota
New grandmothers sometimes get a little goofy - in my case it was "corny". Since our state is known for growing corn, I planned a corn theme dinner for our grandson's first visit. These golden mini muffins with a rich corn taste were a fun part of the meal.
