Cheesy Jalapeno Cornbread

I have to give all the credit to my husband for this one.

I have been asking him to make some of his Delicious corn bread. Maybe its Mexican corn bread? "Nope" he says. "Mexican cornbread has corn in it. This is full of cheese and Jalapenos". Two of my favorites combinations. All I know is I love it.

So, when I got home from work, I could smell the kitchen as I was coming in the door. I knew at that moment what he was fixing. Yes, I'm a lucky girl. I'm married to an Italian that likes to cook and is good at it! He has my dinner ready every day I come in. I'm pretty spoiled. I like to cook but I mostly do the cooking (if any) on the weekends.  While he tries to keep it healthy and balanced , I like to make casseroles and sweet stuff.

So, with my husbands permission, I'm sharing his recipe. Enjoy.

Cheesy Jalapeno Cornbread

1 cup- Buttermilk self rising cornmeal mix
1 cup- Self rising flour
1 cup- Milk (he used 2%)
1/3 cup- Sour Cream
1 Tbs.- Sugar
1/4 cup- Veg. Oil
1- Egg
1 cup- Shredded sharp cheese
1/2 cup- chopped jalapenos (you can use more or less. We like it hot)

Mix all together.

Pour into a heated greased Iron Skillet ( He placed it in the oven while he mixed)
Bake 425 degree for 25 minutes.

But wait.......
He also made some homemade Gumbo to too!

Not sure how he did it but it consist of chicken broth, okra, shrimp, chicken, sausage, diced tomatoes and Texas Pete along with spice and rice.
I think ill have leftovers tonight.
