This tender corn bread from Jean Irving of Thousand Oaks, California stays moists and low-fat by using unsweetened applesauce instead of oil. Jazzed up with chopped green chilies and reduced-fat cheddar cheese, this dish will be a hit!

  2. Combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt; add to egg mixture just until moistened. Fold in the cheese, chilies and pimientos.
  3. Transfer to a 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 15 servings.
