Ingredients that make cheesy jalapeno cornbread special

What makes this cornbread special? All of the mixins! To this recipe, we are adding creamed corn, lots of Cheddar cheese, sour cream, and some pickled jalapeno peppers. I do have to say that a can of green chilies also works very well. When you use pickled jalapeno peppers you are using peppers that aren’t too hot. These peppers are much milder than the fresh ones, so if you have family members that can’t take a lot of heat, this is the perfect recipe for them.

  • 2 boxes Jiffy Corn Bread Muffin Mix
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 15 ounces cream style corn
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 4 beaten eggs
  • 1/4 cup chopped jalapenos or more to taste


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Blend all ingredients together until smooth, about 3-4 minutes. Fill baking cups 3/4 full and bake in a preheated oven about 20 minutes until done. Check for doneness with a toothpick inserted into top of muffin, if the toothpick comes out clean the muffin is done. Store muffins if there are any left in an airtight container. I use the extra large cups and this will make about 9.
