Southwestern Corn Bread
I found this recipe in a cookbook and lightened it up by using skim milk, less oil, egg whites and reduced-fat cheese. It's moist and mildly flavored with canned chilies. —Tena Edyvean of Rapid City, South Dakota

This was a great cornbread. It wasn't dry and I loved the addition of the green chilies and chopped up corn to give it some interesting texture. I will be keeping this recipe!
