Spicy Cheddar and Bacon Cornbread

Updated on August 4, 2014

For me making cornbread means love, for the family is getting together to enjoy food and cherished times. I enjoy making plain cornbread and it's quite delicious with a nice smear of butter, but being the adventurous cook that I am, I like to try new things and test the waters.

There are many good things that one can add to cornbread, but Spicy Cheddar and Bacon Cornbread is my favorite and it has that "wow" factor. Adding cheddar cheese, bacon and green chiles sends this recipe over the top of goodness. Make this for your next family gathering and share the love.
