Sweet and Spicy Cornbread Casserole

Last year we were going to a new house for Thanksgiving dinner, with family I had just met a few months before. When they invited us I asked what I could bring. She responded with “the cornbread casserole,” like it was nothing… I had never heard of it!!

I didn’t tell her that, I just responded, sure. I Googled it as soon as she left. But couldn’t find one that I loved so I took a little of this and that and created my own sweet and spicy cornbread casserole.

How to make a cream corn casserole:

Mix together your cornbread mix, cream corn, sweet corn (reminder drained), sour cream, cheddar cheese, & egg.

Lightly hand mix ingredients together until wet.

Next, add in your honey

& jalapeno

TIP!! While slicing Jalapenos use the produce bag to hold the pepper. The oils won’t get on your skin and no accidental burning of your eyes.

Pour into a 9×13 greased pan (I recommend organic coconut oil) or a cast-iron skillet.

Bake in a 350-degree oven for 45mins to an hour. Take it out when it’s golden brown.

I had this over 25 years at a Mexican restaurant Sunday brunch in San Diego. The only difference was it had green chili's instead of jalapeños. It was good and I'll probably make it that way cause I don't like the taste of jalapeño
