Ingredients

    1 package cornbread mix
    2 tablespoons canola oil
    1 egg, beaten
    3/4 cup skim milk

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Mix together the cornbread mix, oil, egg, milk, frozen corn, and jalapenos in a medium bowl, just until combined.
Coat a 9x9" baking dish with nonstick spray, then pour the batter into the dish.
Bake 25-30 minutes, until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
While the cornbread is baking, prepare the Chipotle-Honey Butter.
Place the butter, honey, and chipotle into a mini food processor or small bowl. Pulse to combine or mash together using the back of a fork. Transfer to a small bowl or ramekin and freeze until the cornbread is ready.
Allow the cornbread to cool for five minutes, then slice into 12 squares. Top each piece of cornbread with 1 1/2 teaspoons Chipotle-Honey Butter.

Serving Size:áMakes 12 servings. 1 square cornbread with 1 1/2 teaspoons butter

    Please only rate recipes if you've MADE them. If you choose not to make them because you deem them unhealthy... ie too much fat, too much sodium, that's fine. DON'T RATE IT!!! Make it, eat it, rate it. Offer suggestions, substitutions, leave a comment... no ratings if you didn't make it. - 2/15/13

    The butter/margarine adds a lot of unnecessary fat/calories/other unhealthiness to this otherwise yummy-looking recipe. Substitutions? I'm thinking something like pureed squash for a similar texture, then add the honey and chipotle? Ideas? - 2/12/13

    I would be trying this recipe, but I need to know what size of cornbread mix to purchase. I am thinking of Jiffy, which makes a small amount of cornbread, or another brand that makes a large amount. So I'd like to know more before trying this. - 2/12/13

    From the editor: The sizes will vary; you'll need one box of whichever brand you choose, enough to yield one loaf. Last time I checked, Jiffy cornbread does contain lard, as an fyi. :) Since you're preparing the basic batter, then adding other ingredients, the exact size do - 1/23/13

    4 sources of fat and cholesterol (not counting whatever is in the cornbread mix already!).... Would have to check sugar/sodium in that honey roasted corn, adobe chile, cornbread mix, and of course, we are also adding honey.... all in all, not at all my idea of healthy. - 2/12/13

  • Ready made packages are known to be higher in trans fat, even if the box says it does not have it. They do not have to put it on the label if it is below a certain level. I would not make this recipe just because it relies on a ready made mix (it makes me weary).

    I hate sweet and savoury together!
    I need to be very careful of fats and salt in particular.
    I love cornbreads and I adore spicy foods and veggies. - 5/12/13

  • Looks Yummy, but I am unhappy and surprised that a SP recipe would be made from a mix! Especially when corn bread is so easy to make. Also, why does everyone say you have to make the recipe to rate it? Its rate the recipe, not the taste,convience
    etc. - 3/7/13

  • Please! Only rate this if you have made it. It's fine if you have a comment to make but if you have not made it how can you legitimately rate it. I am looking at my fat intake but I still use butter and I'm not giving up on honey. All is good in moderation. - 2/16/13

  • The tips for turning it into an entree with the black beans and cheese sound great. I will use my own GF cornbread recipe (which we like better than anything I made before going GF!) and I like this as a vegetarian option for dinner. Always looking for something new to try. - 2/15/13

    I love cornbread so much and very seldom put any butter on it. I love it just the way it is, right out of the oven. - 2/15/13
