Green Chile and Cheddar Cornbread

This quick bread is great for a spring or summer breakfast or brunch, but it’s sweet enough that it can also work as a dessert, too—try it with a scoop of strawberry ice cream on top!

I like the taste of the mildly tart cranberries in this, and I love the way it rises into a nicely-shaped loaf!
