What I really love about this cornbread recipe is how simple it is! It’s as easy as stirring in the ingredients and then popping it into the oven to bake! While you can use any pan for this, I LOVE using my cast iron pan. My grandma used it all the time growing up and it’s one thing I’ve stuck to as well! Cornbread comes out so perfect when baked in the cast iron – it’s an absolute MUST if you don’t already! But if you don’t have cast iron, a springform pan or any 9-inch baking dish works perfectly as well.

HOW TO MAKE MEXICAN CORNBREAD:
Before you get started, make sure to round up all your ingredients to make things nice and speedy in the kitchen! 😉 Preheat the oven to 350f degrees and lightly grease a 9×9-inch baking dish or use a springform pan. In a large mixing bowl, mix together the cornmeal, flour, cheese, green onions, green bell pepper, and canned green chili peppers until well blended.
Stir in the eggs, creamed corn, and milk. Spread the batter out into the prepared pan.
Bake in the oven for 1 hour, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

It was delicious. I poured pinto beans on top. After I baked the corn bread. And I used a red pepper instead of green.
Now that is my kind of meal right there!!
Love this recipe
Could u use the jiffy cornbread mix??
Very good we made it even good couple days later heated in microwave
Wow – thank you so much Lynn! You were so sweet to take the time to come back and comment!
My Mexican cornbread is very similar…I just add a pound of ground beef which I’ve browned with a little onion, salt and pepper. Some people like to make this a layer in the middle but I loke to stir it in so every bite is complete. A great 1 pan supper.
I put this on my menu for next week! Looks amazing. This is my favorite recipe website.
I add a pound of browned sausage to mine. Yummmmm
Cannot get a good thick crust without the cast iron skillet, invest in one, you will not be sorry
I have had this recipe for years but it’s called “Charlie Bread”… YuMMM!
I love the tip on the springform pan as an option. That is seriously the thickest cornbread that I’ve ever seen ~ so now that I’ve seen it, that’s my new cornbread height goals! It just looks amazing ~ can’t wait to try it!
