Loving this cool fall weather and all the food that goes with it! Chili, soup or stew–what’s your pleasure?
When we find a favorite soup recipe we tend to eat it over and over, so I like to play around with what’s served on the side to add a little variety to the meal.
One of our faves is Slow Cooker Tortilla Soup, which deserves a fabulous side like this cheesy cornbread with green chiles for even more flavor. I use the basic cornbread recipe on the back of the canister, but I add sharp cheddar and chopped green chiles to zest it up.
Cheddar & Green Chile Cornbread
I know some would love jalapenos in their cornbread, but that won’t fly with my kids, so we stick with this mellow version. Still delicious!
If you haven’t made cornbread from scratch, I hope you’ll give it a try. It takes two minutes longer than opening a box of mix, and it tastes amazing. Plus, you’ll spend less on the ingredients than you do buying ready-made mixes.
