In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make Mexican cornbread, baked in an iron skillet. Full of cornmeal, eggs, Cheddar cheese, sour cream, whole kernel corn, and chopped green chiles, you can't miss with this one!
2 cups self-rising cornmeal mix (Adjust with cornmeal and flour, and add baking powder and salt, if you cannot find self-rising cornmeal mix.)
1 cup finely shredded Cheddar cheese (You may substitute a different type of cheese, if you like.)
1 cup sour cream
1 cup whole kernel corn, drained
4 oz. can chopped green chiles, drained
2 eggs, well beaten
2 tablespoons vegetable oil (for batter)
2 tablespoon peanut oil (for greasing skillet or baking pan)
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a 9-inch square baking pan or a 10-inch oven-proof skillet. (I used an iron skillet and poured 2 tablespoons peanut oil into the bottom and used my hands to spread it over the bottom and around the sides of the skillet. Then, I heated the skillet to a very high heat right before pouring the cornmeal batter in. Do not let the hot oil smoke!) In a large bowl, combine 2 cups self-rising cornmeal mix, 1 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese, 1 cup sour cream, 1 cup whole kernel corn, 4 oz. can drained green chiles, 2 well-beaten eggs, and 2 tablespoons vegetable oil. Stir, just until all ingredients are combined. Pour into a hot, greased skillet or baking pan. Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown and done. To test for doneness, place a toothpick in the center of the cornbread, and it should come out clean. Immediately remove from oven, and cut into pie-shaped wedges (for skillet) or squares (for baking pan). Serve piping hot with fresh butter! Delicious!!! You can serve this cornbread with Tex-Mex style chili, or a bowl of chili hot beans, or just eat it by itself with butter, along with a cold glass of milk! Its wonderful!!!
