Texas Chili Corn Bread


  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped and diced
  • 1/2 medium size onion, chopped and diced
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 (4 ounce) can diced green chiles, drained (less if you prefer a less spicy bread)
  • 1 cup corn kernels - fresh, frozen or canned
  • 1 1/2 cups grated cheese, Cheddar or jack


  1. Heat the oven to 450 degrees F. Grease a 10-inch skillet and place it on the middle shelf in the oven.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the cornmeal, baking powder, sugar and salt.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs then stir in the rest of the ingredients, reserving 1/2 cup of the grated cheese.
  4. Form a well in the dry ingredients and pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix with a spatula until well combined.
  5. Carefully remove the hot pan from the oven and immediately pour the batter into the pan.
  6. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top and return to the oven.
  7. Let bake for 20 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center of the pan comes out clean. The top will be a rich, golden brown.
  8. Let cool for ten minutes before unmolding.
