My husband said that he thought the jalapeno cornbread would taste great with or without the shredded cheese.

If you love cheese as I do, you can keep it a part of the recipe, but if you’re not big on cheese, give it a try without it.

For the jalapenos, I bought a jar that was precut. I went on and diced them up just a little bit more for the recipe.
