Green Chili Cheddar Cheese Cornbread

Posted on January 27, 2016 by Tommye Solem

Warm, spicy, ever so cheesy and savory, this cornbread is delicious by itself or accompanied by a steamy bowl of soup.

2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 cups whole milk
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup Baklouti Chili Olive Oil
8 ounces sharp grated Cheddar, 2 ounces reserved
1/3 cup chopped scallions, + 2 tablespoons reserved
2 tablespoons (1 small pepper) seeded finely diced Anaheim pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x9" baking pan with Baklouti Olive Oil. Combine the flour, cornmeal, honey, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the milk, eggs, and Baklouti Olive Oil. With a wooden spoon, stir the wet ingredients into the dry. Mix in the grated Cheddar, scallions, and Anaheim peppers. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, smooth the top, and sprinkle with the reserved grated Cheddar and extra chopped scallions. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool and cut into large squares. Serve warm or at room temperature. (Recipe shared by Rachel Bradley)
