"This is one of our favorite recipes. I panicked because I want to make it and have all my cookbooks packed away because we're moving. I remembered that Taste of Home had all the recipes on-line, so "Thank you Taste of Home". When I make this bread, I omit the corn and reduce the amount of Jalapenos. It's just our personal preference. I'm sure it's equally as delicious as the original recipe is printed."
