Recipe 38: MEXICAN CORNBREAD (Bread/Rolls)

This recipe comes from the Broadway Family cookbook.  Now considering we are southern, I dont know how truly mexican it is.  Southerners call anything with peppers in it "Mexican". So this is the 'Southern version of Mexican cornbread".

1 cup SELF RISING corn meal
1/2 cup self rising flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
3 tsp baking powder
1 cup yellow cream style corn
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 hot pepper, chopped
3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese

mix everything together.  Pour into a greased pan and bake at 350 for 45 minutes.

I KNOW we are using self rising cornmeal AND self rising. flour...AND we are adding soda and powder...I dont ask why, maybe the rising needs a little extra boost. All I know is it works and is delicious.
