Quilt-Topped Cornbread

This recipe relies on peppers and chilies to dress up two rounds of corn bread. We like to serve slices alongside salsa and light sour cream -Robyn Oro of Raytown, Missouri

    16 servings


  • 2 cans (4 ounces each) whole green chiles
  • 1 large sweet red pepper
  • 2 packages (8-1/2 ounces each) cornbread/muffin mix
  • 1 can (14-3/4 ounces) cream-style corn
  • 1 can (11 ounces) Mexicorn, drained
  • 1 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • 2/3 cup water

  • Coat two 9-in. round baking pans with cooking spray. Slice green chiles in half lengthwise; pat dry. Place six chile halves skin side down in a star burst pattern in each pan. Cut red pepper into twelve 1/4-in. slices and two 1-in. circles. Place slices between the chiles and circles in the center.
