Jalapeño-Cheddar Cornbread (Made with Olive Oil)


Alright y'all, this Jalapeño-Cheddar Cornbread (Made with Olive Oil) is light with hints of sweet honey to complement the fresh jalapeños... pair it with Proper Good's NEW Southwest Chili, and you have yourself a made-from-scratch meal in less than 25 minutes with only a few minutes of hands-on work!

So, here me out - If there is one type of soup that I do not like making, it's any type of chili... I don't know why, but I always either under-spice or over-spice or do something else that leaves it just not perfect. BUT I LOVE CHILI, so when Proper Good reached out to me about their new Southwest Chili Soup, let's just say I had a little party dance.

It's Vegan-Friendly, made with plant-based ground beef, gluten free, zero added sugars, and 290 calories with 19 grams of wholesome protein!

Jalapeño-Cheddar Cornbread (Made with Olive Oil)



  • 1 1/4 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1 cup Fine Ground Cornmeal
  • 1 tbsp. Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 4 large Eggs, (whisked)

  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Drizzle a little bit of olive oil to a 10" skillet over medium high heat, then add in the corn and jalapeño peppers to saute until browned, about 5-6 minutes. Set aside to cool.

  4. Add in the honey, buttermilk, and whisked eggs, then stir together until evenly combined. Fold in the browned corn and jalapeños, as well as the shredded cheddar.
