MORE than Cornbread

Fall is almost, officially, here.  There is a crisp to the air already, and I’m loving it.

Fall is a favorite time of the year for me.  I love all the holidays, and the leaves changing color, my birthday is in the Fall, and it also means Christmas is right around the corner.

I am one those people who LOVE Christmas.  Enough that all those decorations at Hobby Lobby right now, aren’t bothering me a bit.

Anyway, back to Fall.  With the cooler weather comes warm soups.  A great way to make a meal out of soup is with some sort of bread on the side.  I have already shared a great recipe for more of a sweet cornbread.  Today I am sharing a more savory recipe of cornbread.  This is what I grew up with.

More than Cornbread, made with green chiles and cheese

More than Cornbread is called that because it really is MORE than normal cornbread.

There are green chiles, and grated cheese in here.

There is also a can of creamed corn.  You get great moisture and texture from that can.

You can bake this in a pie tin, or just an 8×8 pan.

Don’t forget the honey!
