New Orleans Beer And Jalapeño Cornbread

New Orleans Beer And jalapeños Cornbread

A few years ago I went to New Orleans basically to eat, and although I loved the food in New Orleans the one thing that stuck out was the beer and jalapeños cornbread!

I have tried so many times to recreate that New Orleans beer and jalapeños cornbread and this is as close as I could get,

I swear I gained 20 pounds from cornbread alone! (and it was worth it)

 I highly recommend a visit to New Orleans if you have not been, it is full of life, food, music, entertainment and amazing homes.

I  had my first piece of Cornbread in a tiny hole in the wall bar, it was cooked in a cast iron pan and looked pretty average actually. The only reason I ordered it was I have always heard about how amazing cornbread is, and that was that served on a plate with a bit of butter and I have been chasing it ever since.

I’m a firm believer that travel is not fulfilling if you’re not immersing yourself in the local foods and cultures , some foods you will hate and some foods you will love but at the end of it you will have created new tastes and memories to bring home.

I make this with only fresh corn as the taste is so much better but in a pinch frozen will do just fine.

And for the spice lovers, adding fresh chopped chillies is the way to go along with the pickled jalapeños.

Try this with my  fresh corn chowder  you will not be disappointed !
