Mexican Cornbread

I work at an elementary school, and a couple times a year we have a gathering where everyone brings a favorite dish to pass. A friend shared this delicious Mexican cornbread and it was a big hit. —Sandy Gaulitz, Spring, Texas

    I have made this several times for my family, as well as, potlucks. It is always a crowd pleaser and has people asking for the recipe. It is definitely a keeper!

    I took this to a potluck and it was gone in no time! My family doesn't like spicy food so I omit the onion and jalapeno. It's definitely a keeper.

    I took this to a Chili Cook-off last night as a side. Everybody loved it. I made as posted and it was very moist & had lots of flavor. Even people that do not eat cornbread loved this one. Thanks for sharing.

    I have not made this as yet, can't seem to find Cornbread mix in Canada. Do you know where I can get it?

    If you want a mexican corn bread, this is the best! I use Krusteaz honey cornbread mix - it's the best!
