Mexican Cornbread


1 C. cornmeal
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 C. milk
2 eggs
3/4 tsp. salt
1 can creamed corn
1/2 T. bacon drippings
1 lb. ground beef
1 C. grated cheddar cheese
1 onion, chopped
3 jalapeño peppers, chopped

Combine cornmeal, milk, eggs, salt, soda, bacon drippings, and corn. Mix well and set aside. Brown meat and drain. Pour 1/2 of batter into greased 10-inch cast iron skillet.

Meat and cheese were omitted from your ingredients?
Thanks :slight_smile:

Sorry about leaving out the meat, it takes 1 pound ground beef. Hope you try it, it’s really good. Recipe has been updated.
