Skillet Jalapeno Cornbread

I love my sweet heat. One of my very favorite meals is my Spicy Sweet Chili with Brown Sugar Cornbread. I love my cornbread with sugar and I can’t apologize for that! It is the sugar that makes cornbread so appealing to me!

As I was thinking about what to make for this event I came across a recipe in a skillet cooking magazine for making cornbread and topping it with garden fresh veggies. I had to take that idea and run with it making slight changes along the way for the way I knew I would love to eat it!

Grumpy isn’t much of a cornbread eater. He used to eat his chili served over top of rice. I will still do that for him sometimes but because I’m a chili and cornbread girl, we have to take turns with what we serve alongside of it.

The corn this summer has been delicious. I have become quite adept at cooking it on the grill which has become my favorite way of eating it! Just a little olive oil rubbed over the cob, sprinkled with a little garlic grinder salt, and grilled to perfection. The corn is sweet with a little of the flavorful salt combined.

For this recipe I went with just fresh cut corn on the cob – uncooked. It was going to be baked in the oven after all so I felt I did not need to precook it. I love how beautiful and summer fresh this recipe is. Serve beside a small bowl of chili or even just a piece of grilled meat, it is all you need to make your meal complete!
