Kickin' Corn Bread

(6 Votes)
20 Min

We've got a secret ingredient that makes our Kickin' Corn Bread second to none. And the best part is, a box mix helps this recipe come together in a flash!

What You'll Need:
  • 1/2 (15-ounce) can sweet potatoes, drained
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 chipotle chile pepper in adobo sauce (from a 7-ounce can)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (8-1/2-ounce) package corn muffin mix
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon honey
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat an 8-inch cast iron skillet or 8-inch cake pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat sweet potatoes, egg, milk, chipotle pepper, and salt until smooth. Stir in corn muffin mix just until moistened. Pour batter into skillet.
  3. Bake 20 to 22 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  4. In a small bowl, mix butter and honey. Brush over top of bread and let cool 5 minutes. Cut into wedges and serve with remaining honey butter.

I tried making this recipe with the chipotle jalapeno salsa using 1/2 cup. The heat was perfect(better than using the whole pepper) but thought the texture was more like cake than bread. Your thoughts?

I had found chipotle chile pepper in adobo sauce once but since that purchase I can no longer find this product. What I ended up buying was chipotle jalapeno salsa. How much should I sub in place of the whole pepper?

While we have not tried making this recipe with chipotle jalapeno salsa, we believe that starting with 1/2 - 3/4 cup of salsa will be okay. We'd love to hear how it turns out!

We tried this recipe last night and it was delicious! Used Maple syrup in place of the honey. What do I make with the leftover chipotle peppers?

Hi there! We're glad you enjoyed this recipe. :) Here are a few of our recipes that use chipotle peppers: Tex-Mex Enchiladas, BBQ Chipotle Burgers, Two-Step BBQ Chicken, and Chipotle Cream Shrimp. Enjoy!

The recipe sounds so good, a change from the normal cornbread recipe

Want to make this but would like to make muffins instead. What do you think?

Awesome recipe from the normal
