Fiesta Corn Bread Recipe

I love this bread—it's my most requested recipe and has won blue ribbons at county fairs in three different states.—Jean K Irving, Thousand Oaks, California
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 35 min. YIELD:15 servings


  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 can (14-3/4 ounces) cream-style corn
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
  • 1 jar (4 ounces) diced pimientos, drained


  • 1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in corn (mixture will appear curdled). Combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture just until moistened. Fold in the cheeses, chilies and pimientos.
  • 2. Transfer to a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 15 servings.

"This is a GREAT recipe. but i made the following changes. i used chopped (Jar)jalopenos instead of chilis. and Red BellPepper chopped fine, instead of pimentos... also ended up using 3/4 cup more cornmeal, because i mixed alltogether before i added the wet ingrediants. i'll learn."
