Jalapeno Cornbread Casserole - The Best Cornbread You Will Ever Eat

This is easily the best cornbread casserole recipe you will find.

This recipe is wonderful combination of jalapeno cornbread and a delicious cornbread casserole.

It can be served as a side dish, but is hearty enough to be a meal by itself.It takes some effort to put together, but I promise you it is well worth the time.

 
The recipe calls for a 12 inch Dutch Oven and 28-30 charcoal briquets,  but can also be cooked in a conventional oven at 375 degrees.

Try this cornbread recipe together with my Southern Fried Chicken and you will go to bed happy.

(I almost said “die happy” but that is clearly not what we hope to achieve here)
