Dress up packaged cornbread with sweet honey-roasted corn and spicy jalapenos. The chipotle-honey butter adds even more flavor for little effort.
1 package cornbread mix
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 egg, beaten
3/4 cup skim milk
1 cup frozen corn
1 jalapeno, seeds and ribs removed, chopped
4 tablespoons unsalted butter or margarine
1 tablespoon honey
1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, chopped
Turn this into a quick dinner by stirring a can of drained and rinsed black beans and 1/2 cup shredded low-fat sharp cheddar into the batter.
Use the remaining Green Giant® Honey Roasted Sweet Corn for a quick dinner tomorrow: Saute lean chicken breast, then top with your favorite salsa and Green Giant® Honey Roasted Sweet Corn. Serve with brown rice.
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: Makes 12 servings. 1 square cornbread with 1 1/2 teaspoons butter

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
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
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
