Chipotle Bacon Cheddar Cornbread

what's cooking

Today is International Bacon Day! In honor of the festivities, I decided it was an excuse to add bacon to one of my faves – Chipotle Cheddar Cornbread. Super easy recipe, semi-homemade style.

5 strips thick-cut bacon
2 packages Jiffy Cornbread Mix
2/3 cup milk
2 eggs
1 cup grated onion cheddar
3 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, chopped fine


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Cook the bacon to crispy but still chewy. Reserve some bacon grease (about two tablespoons) drain remainder and diced into small pieces. Set aside.
  3. Mix cornbread mix, milk and eggs until well incorporated.
  4. Mix in onion cheddar, chipotle peppers, and bacon.
  5. Take bacon grease and use to grease a 4″x8″ loaf pan.
  6. Pour bread batter into pan, and transfer to oven. Bake about 1 hour, until top is golden brown and you can insert a toothpick to the bread and it comes out clean.
  7. Let cool about one hour, remove from pan. Serve plain, or with butter and honey.
