Put away your bread knife! There's no slicing this Cheesy Spoon Bread; just spoon it out! We added a little kick to this spoon bread to add a zesty new flavor to a traditional Southern favorite.

What You'll Need:
  • 1/2 cup fine white cornmeal (see Note)
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chilies, drained
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Mexican cheese blend
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 5- inch loaf pan with cooking spray
     
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed, combine cornmeal, water, butter, baking powder, salt, and pepper for 30 seconds. Add eggs and milk and beat 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly mixed.
     
  3. Pour half of batter into a prepared loaf pan. Spoon chilies and 2/3 cup of cheese evenly over batter. Pour remaining batter over cheese and top with remaining 1/3 cup cheese.
     
  4. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden. Serve warm.
     
Notes
  • Fine white cornmeal is available in the supermarket baking aisle or alongside the hot cereals.

This is delicious. I have also made it with salsa with great results. Love spoon bread no matter how it is made.
