Mexican Corn Bread

1 (2-inch) square
50 Min

Mexican Corn Bread is a welcome change from the normal side serving of bread, so go ahead and spice things up a little. A small portion of this won't damage your diabetes diet as long as it's served with a well-balanced meal of lean protein and lots of vegetables!

What You'll Need

  • 1 1/2 cup self-rising cornmeal
  • 1 (8-3/4-ounce) can cream-style corn
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 3/4 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend, divided
  • 1 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs

What to Do

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients except 1/4 cup cheese; mix well, then pour into the baking dish and sprinkle with the reserved 1/4 cup cheese.

  3. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cut into squares and serve warm.

Could you rework this recipe using a corn bread mix, instead of starting with the cornmeal? What amts of cheese and corn would you use when making with a mix? Thanks for the help.

Yes, you could use a corn bread mix instead of cornmeal. The amount of cheese and corn would not change, but you do need to follow the ingredients on the box for the cornbread mix. You will also not need the oil and eggs called for in our recipe. Of course, by using a corn bread mix the nutritional values will be different too. We hope you enjoy this bread!
