Ingredients

    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

    Chipotle-Honey Butter
    4 tablespoons unsalted butter or margarine
    1 tablespoon honey
    1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, chopped


Tips

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.


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

    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
