Serves: 6 servings
  • 1 cup Yellow Corn Meal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup milk

  • 1 large egg lightly beaten
  • 1 small can green chilies
  • 1 small can sweet corn
  • 1/3 cup grated cheddar cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan or iron skillet.
  2. Combine the meal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Combine milk, oil, and egg in small bowl; mix well. Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture then stir just until blended.
  3. Add green chilies, corn, and cheddar. Stir just until blended. Pour into prepared pan. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until the top has browned, and a toothpick comes out clean.
Quick notes
Please use real cheese that you have grated yourself. Cheese that comes already grated has fillers that could affect the texture and flavor.
If you want it really spicy, add Chipotle pepper or Jalapeño pepper instead. You can also buy the corn with the chilies already mixed in, but I don't think there are enough.
