Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk

  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder

Preparation

  1. 1. In a bowl, mix flour, cornmeal, 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl, beat eggs to blend with buttermilk and 1/4 cup butter. Stir green chilies and cheese into egg mixture. Pour liquids into flour mixture and stir just until evenly moistened.
  2. 2. Scrape batter into a buttered 8-inch square pan and spread smooth. In a small bowl, combine chili powder and remaining 1 tablespoon sugar; sprinkle over batter in pan.
  3. 3. Bake in a 400° oven until bread springs back when lightly pressed in the center and begins to pull from pan sides, about 25 minutes (20 minutes in a convection oven).
  4. 4. Cut bread into squares. Lift from pan with a slender spatula. Serve hot or cool.
