The green pumpkinseeds, or pepitas, lend crunch, while the green chiles add spicy heat. Pepitas are sold at large grocery stores or Mexican markets. Serve this bread with chili, spice-rubbed pork tenderloin, or as a savory snack with salsa.
1/2 cup (2 ounces) reduced-fat shredded cheddar cheese
1 (8 1/2-ounce) package corn muffin mix (such as Jiffy)
1 (4.5-ounce) can chopped green chiles, drained
1/4 cup unsalted pumpkinseed kernels
