If you use canned chiles and want the heat, make sure you look for the cans that say "hot", not "mild" on them.
- 1 cup plus 2 Tbsp cornmeal
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) softened unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 2 eggs
- 1 3/4 cups milk
- 2 cups of chopped, roasted green chiles (Anaheim or Hatch) (2 7-ounce cans of whole green chiles, drained, chopped)
- 1 cup corn (frozen is fine)
- 1 cup shredded cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese (4 ounces)
1 Preheat oven and prep baking dish: Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease a 3-quart baking dish.
2 Make the batter: In a large bowl mix 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.
3 Bake: Bake at 400°F for 35 minutes, or until top is browned, the center springs back when pressed down, and a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean.
Let cool almost completely before serving.
