The other night, I decided to make spaghetti. Now you can't just have spaghetti by itself, right? No you can't. Not in this house anyway! :) So I decided to whip up an old favorite. Let's make some jalapeno cornbread poppers!

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients
6 jalapenos
Cornbread mix (small package)
1 small can corn

You'll also need the butter, milk and egg(s) needed for your cornbread mix. Just look on the back of the package/box to see how much.

Rinse your jalapenos.

Looks tasty; Can't wait to try! Thank you.

For folks who want to make their own cornbread mix, the following recipe is the best I've found:

Homemade Cornbread Mix


4 cups flour

1 Tbsp. salt

1 cup sugar

1/4 cup baking powder

1 cup solid vegetable shortening

4 cups cornmeal


Combine the flour, salt, sugar, and baking powder in a large bowl. With a pastry blender or two knives cut in shortening until particles are fine. Add the cornmeal and mix well. Store in refrigerator in an airtight container for 3-4 months. Makes about 10 cups of dry mix


Combine 2 1/2 cups of the homemade cornbread mix with 1 beaten egg and 1-1/4 cups milk. Mix just until dry ingredients are moistened. Pour into a greased 8" square pan or greased muffin tins and bake at 425 degrees for 15-25 minutes until light golden brown and bread springs back when lightly touched with finger. Muffins will bake for the shorter time period.

Since i live in Poland and can not purchase the ornbread mix, could you tell me how can one make it on his own?

Thank you so much! I've been so busy, I hadn't found time to reply.

I think this will do nicely:

If you are a big baby, as I am,
feel free to remove the placental tissue (the white part where the seeds attach) for a Much milder jalapeno experience.

On second thought, I see you mentioned that.
But I'll let my comment stand, because I know there are more than a few jalepeno weaklings out there, who shouldn't be deprived the cornbread poppers experience!

Would you know how much degrees it might be in celcius for the oven? or is it on the cornbread mix box?

350 degrees Fahrenheit = 176 degrees Celsius, according to google. It's also probably on the cornbread mix box.
