What is Mexican Style Cornbread
If you are wondering what is Mexican cornbread compared to regular cornbread, let me tell you what makes it so unique! Mexican cornbread is a moist cornbread that melts in your mouth. It is very moist from the creamed corn you use as well as other ingredients. Then you have the elements of peppers and shredded cheese to just amplify your flavors.
The beauty is you can just toss the ingredients in a bowl, mix it up, pour and bake. Crazy easy but the results are a rich, decadent cornbread that will change your life after the first bite.
I am not a fan of creamed corn on its own; I grew up eating it too often. But one day this cornbread was at a potluck, and I tried it and fell in love. I begged for the recipe and when they said creamed corn my mouth dropped. That gooey corn you find in a can creates some of the most flavorful moist cornbread you will ever sink your teeth into.
If you want to add even more spice to this cornbread, toss in some pepper jack cheese, or even a seeded jalapeno diced up. You can always amplify the heat if you want a more spicy factor.
