Pretty flecks of jalapeno and red peppers peek out from this golden corn bread. It has a mild flavor, which appeals to all palates. —Ila Bray, Pelham, North Carolina

"I served this along with my favorite chili recipe when we had "Mexican Night" at our home. It was a great hit. One of my guests who enjoys corn bread says it was the best he's ever tasted."
