green chile & cheddar cornbread

Since I was a little girl I can always remember loving cornbread. Given that I quite despise slathering honey or butter on anything, I prefer just plain old cornbread. Except when it comes to cornbread plus green chiles and cheddar cheese. Green chiles and cheddar cheese make even the best piece of simple cornbread better. However, my childhood self would most likely disagree.

My mom makes an incredible cornbread with green chiles and cheddar cheese that I wanted to replicate. Whenever she makes it I eat far more than my fair share. However she was out of town so I had to give it my best shot.

I offered to bring a dish to Krista’s Not-So-Grown-Up Housewarming Party but had to keep it very simple as I didn’t have much time and this cornbread was just that. The cornbread only required one bowl and was in and out of the oven with little worry. The only modification I would make is that next time I would add more green chiles and cheddar!
