Jalapeno Bacon Cornbread

Teresa Ambra

You all know I love cornbread recipes, right? Jalapeno Bacon Cornbread is another fantastic cornbread with a little bit of heat. This recipe starts with one of my favorite cornbread recipes, but I added Hormel’s jalapeno bacon. That’s right, jalapeno bacon. I have several cornbread recipes with jalapenos, but never tried one made with jalapeno bacon before!

I made a meal for a friend in mid-January who had surgery to remove a squamish cell carcinoma. I served this cornbread with a Creamy Chicken Sausage Vegetable Chowder and an Easy Cherry Crisp. I asked her if they enjoyed a little heat in their food and they said “bring it on!”

You can increase the heat in this cornbread by adding more bacon. I decided to keep it a little less potent by using only four slices of bacon instead of six or eight. I thought the cornbread had plenty of heat without being so hot that you couldn’t eat it.

My husband found several packages of this jalapeno bacon on sale last April or May (before his stroke) and we put it in the freezer. I used one package for Caramelized Jalapeno Bacon Twists. Little did we know when we took that appetizer to a graduation party earlier that afternoon that our lives would change forever later that night. My husband suffered a massive stroke and was not expected to live. As I write this, it has been almost eight months since then. He has recovered a good deal but not fully. We are grateful for the recovery he has made.

Jalapeno Bacon Cornbread is really delightful if you enjoy a little Tex-Mex heat in your food. This is not a bland cornbread like some recipes are. It pops with flavor and has great texture. Give it a try the next time you want to wake up your friends and family. 🙂
