I like all kinds of cornbread—traditional cornbread is great, but it’s also fun trying out different add-ins. This Easy Savory Cornbread starts off with some corn muffin mix and gets its’ savory flavor from a can of diced tomatoes and green chilies, along with a cup of cheddar cheese mixed into the batter. Pretty easy, right?
You can serve this cornbread at any meal as a substitute for rolls or biscuits. It’s great for breakfast or brunch with scrambled eggs or a breakfast casserole, and lunch or dinner with soup or chili. Or just have it as a snack during the day. You can serve it warm or wait till it cools completely—I prefer it warm myself! 🙂
