Tex Mex Cornbread

  • Yield 15 servings

Tex-Mex Corn Bread is delicious with just about anything - gumbo, chili, soup, or a big pot of beans. I've been making it for more than 40 years.


1 1/2 cups cornmeal, preferably stone ground
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 extra-large eggs, beaten
1/4 cup canola or olive oil
1 to 1 1/2 cup whole buttermilk
3/4 cup chopped onions
1 cup frozen whole-kernel corn, thawed
2 tablespoons finely chopped jalapeno chiles, or to taste
2 cups shredded mild Cheddar


  1. Preheat the oven to 375F. Grease a jelly roll pan.
  2. Combine the cornmeal, flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda in a large bowl; mix well. Add the remaining ingredients and stir just until blended. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and bake for 15 minutes, or until golden.
