Green Chile Cornbread

Green Chile Cornbread

Winter ushered in the New Year with quite the icy cold blast and a touch of snow. So the plan for today is to start a fire, snuggle in, and enjoy a lazy day inside. And it’s a perfect day to make some home made Chili and Cornbread. Although truth be told, in this case it should probably be called Cornbread and Chili because this recipe is just amazing!

This is a moist, dense cornbread with just the right amount of grit, but calorie counters beware! It’s also comfort food at it’s buttery, decadent best. We cook it as an occasional indulgence, and it’s always a treat. I’ve never been able to decide if I like it best with Chili for dinner, or as breakfast the next day, heated up and crumbled in milk. Either way, it’s just too good not to share.
