This cornbread containing meat, cheese, peppers, and other ingredients is a family favorite. It’s great alone or with a bowl of beans on the side. You may add extra cheese or peppers to suit your own taste. If making a double batch, use 1 can of whole-kernel corn and 1 can of cream-style corn.
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 cup cornmeal
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup milk
- 1 egg
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 (14.5 ounce) can cream-style corn
- 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
- 2 jalapeno peppers, chopped
Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat a 9X12 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat; cook the ground beef in the skillet until no longer pink. Set aside.
In a large bowl, stir together the cornmeal, salt, and baking soda. Mix in milk, egg, onion, corn, Cheddar cheese, and jalapeno pepper. Stir in browned beef. Pour into the prepared baking dish.
Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 1 hour.
