Ms. Newman's Mexican Cornbread
**NOTE: I doubled this recipe, which is reflected in the pictures.**
1 1/2 c. self-rising corn meal
1 c. cream-style corn
1 c. sour cream
1/2 c. oil
2 jalapeno peppers, sliced
4 oz. chopped green chilies
1 c. grated sharp cheddar cheese
Here are the ingredients you'll need (I kind of feel sacreligious using Ree's "Cast of Characters" line). Notice you see onion in it, but not in the recipe. I added onion because I like it and I had about half an onion left over from another "project". I liked it in the dish, but feel free to leave it out.
The lovely batter all mixed together.
After I poured half the batter in (actually I'd say that is more than half), I layered it with half the cheese.
Next, I poured in the rest of the batter, rest of the cheese, and topped with some pickled jalapeno slices I like to keep in my fridge. I didn't get a picture of the full dish after it was baked, so this is as close as it gets :)
This was what was left of the bread! Next time, I will put all of the cheese into the batter instead of layering it. I'd also add another can of green chilies for some extra pizzaz, and maybe some cumin, too!
