If you really don’t like spicy food at ALL, don’t dismiss this recipe. Simply omit the peppers altogether (sigh) and throw in an extra little bit of grated cheddar cheese. Make it sharp cheddar! Or cherry tomatoes or a can of sweet corn kernels. Or how about some cooked, chopped bacon? Green onions would be amazing, as well.
This cornbread only takes 30 minutes to make, from start to finish. I LOVE THAT! It is a great addition to any holiday or family meal and it also goes great alongside a steaming bowl of chili or Chicken Wild Rice Soup or Chicken and Dumplings.
If you do not have a cast iron skillet, use a square baking dish or pie plate instead. You may need to adjust baking time, so use your oven light for peeking!
