This week Sunday Supper Tastemakers are celebrating “Summer Corn” and sharing with you all of our “corny” recipes! A big thank you to Ellen from Family Around The Table who is hosting this event!

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!

Skillet Jalapeno Cornbread

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!

    I see this recipe being made often at my house. I can just imagine it with a big bowl of chili!

    I agree with you on the sugar – cornbread must be sweet but brown sugar? That is genius – I love the depth of flavor brown sugar gives. Then the jalapeños are a must! Love the way you dressed up the cornbread. it looks amazing with those toppings and everything is better in a cast iron skillet!
