The Pizza Guy Leaveth…

When we get pizza delivery, the box always has one or two small containers of jalapeño peppers. I don’t know why, we don’t use it on our pizza, and they send it even if you tell them not to. But, that’s okay, there are recipes to be made with those lovely little peppers, like Jalapeño Stuffed Peppers and, of course, Cheesy Jalapeno Corn Bread with Creamed Corn.

Another thing I don’t ever buy is cream style corn, and yet, it manages to show up in my pantry on occasion. Sometimes, people bring gifts, and sometimes it’s food they don’t like or know what to do with. I don’t like cream style corn, but I love it in corn bread. Will I purposely go out and buy it just for corn bread? Nope, I wait until some kind soul mysteriously adds it to my pantry.

Rich and Simple

This is a simple bread to make, and rich. Using melted butter instead of oil makes it buttery tasting, and Chipotle gives it a smoky kick, and the cream style corn makes it nice and moist. Serve it with chili, or plain by itself warm out of the oven.
