Finally. A green chile cornbread that is moist, flavorful, and filled with corn and chiles!
I've been experimenting for a couple of years now and believe we now have a winner.
Do you like green chiles? I grew up eating Anaheims. They are best when roasted fresh over a flame, but you can easily use the canned chiles.

What to Serve With Green Chile Cornbread
Pair this cornbread with chili and soups, as well as southwestern braised/grilled/stewed meats and beans:
- Best Beef Chili
- Slow Cooker Taco Soup
- Chipotle Pumpkin Soup
- Santa Fe Pork and Black Bean Stew
- Grilled Chili Lime Flank Steak
Storage and Reheating
Keep leftover cornbread in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in the oven at 350°F (or toaster oven at 325°F), covered loosely with foil to prevent overbrowning, 10 to 15 minutes. Alternatively, you can reheat individual pieces in the microwave on high for 20 to 30 seconds each.
Green Chile Cornbread
If you use canned chiles and want the heat, make sure you look for the cans that say "hot," not "mild" on them.
1 1/4 cups (190g) fine cornmeal
1 1/4 cups (175g) all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 cup (50g) sugar
1/2 cup (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup (115g) sour cream
2 large eggs
1 1/4 cups milk
2 cups chopped, roasted green chiles (Anaheim or Hatch), or 2 (7-ounce) cans chopped green chiles, drained
1 cup (130g) corn kernels (if frozen, defrosted; if canned, drained)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (4 ounces, 113g)
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
Make the batter:
In a large bowl whisk together the cornmeal, flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.
In a separate bowl, beat the softened butter and sugar. Beat the sour cream and eggs into the butter-sugar mixture.
Add the milk and the dry ingredients, a third at a time, and alternating wet/dry.
Mix in the green chiles, corn, and shredded cheese. Pour mixture into prepared baking dish.
Bake until the top is browned, the center springs back when pressed down, and a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes.
Let cool almost completely before serving.
