Pin It Everytime I make chili I have to make cornbread. I usually just make a pan and cut squares. Today I was feeling creative and decided to spice it up a bit. I originally was just gong to make cheddar cornbread, but I had an open jar of jalapenos that were just asking to be used. Don't let the jalapenos scare you. These are not too spicy at all and you can definitely adjust the amount to your liking. These are absolutely fabulous with my Weeknight Chili!
