To be honest I had never even had a thought to put chili (of any kind), into cornbread before but it totally makes sense. The cornbread itself is sweet and the addition of a little sweet heat makes it SO good. I also added a little bit of cheddar cheese in there because, why not?!

What Ingredients & Equipment Do I Need For This Recipe?


Ingredients:

  • Cornmeal– I used extra fine for my recipe but you can use a little bit of a more dense cornmeal if that’s all you can find.
  • All-Purpose Flour- Can be substituted for your favorite 1:1 gluten-free alternative
  • Granulated Sugar
  • Kosher Salt
  • Baking Soda– Make sure this is up to date!
  • Cheddar Cheese– For this you can use whatever kind of cheese you like, or no cheese at all!
  • Cooked Corn– This part is optional. I used some frozen corn that I had in the freezer. Using corn from the can works well also. It gives the cornbread an extra texture and flavor.
  • Neutral Oil– I used vegetable oil, but coconut oil would work well also.
  • Milk of Choice– I wouldn’t suggest a sweet milk alternative for this recipe (i.e. sweetened vanilla almond milk). Whole milk is my go-to when it comes to baking.
  • Large Eggs
  • 4 ounce Can of Chopped Chilis– If you want a little more spice, you can substitute the green chilis for chopped/diced jalapeños. Just be sure to drain as much as the liquid as possible.

Equipment:

  • Set of Measuring Cups & Spoons OR Digital Kitchen Scale if using Metric
  • Large Mixing Bowl– This is a one bowl recipe!
  • Whisk– Incorporating the dry ingredients together.
  • Rubber Spatula– Best for folding in the wet ingredients into the dry
  • 8″x8″ METAL Baking Dish– If all you have is a glass baking dish, that’s okay! You’ll just want to increase the oven temperature by about 10°.
  • Pan Spray– Gotta make sure the cornbread comes out to enjoy!
  • Cake Tester or Toothpick– To check the doneness of the cornbread.

My Kinda Professional Tips For Green Chile Cornbread

  • As with all of my recipes, I suggest having everything ready to go before you get started. This will make the preparation process go smoothly and also help to ensure you don’t accidentally forget something!
  • Try not to over mix your batter. This will result in a dense and chewy (not in a good way) cornbread.
  • Bake in a metal pan. I know there is a lot of debate whether glass or metal is better to bake in. For this definitely metal. Metal gets hotter faster and more evenly resulting in an even bake.
