Cheddar and Green Chile Cornbread


cheddar and green chile cornbread

This is not a traditional Southern cornbread. The ratio of flour to cornmeal makes the texture of the cornbread a bit more cake like and the cheese and green chiles add a nice punch of flavor. This would be an excellent accompaniment to many soups.
