Gluten-Free Jalapeno Corn Spoon Bread

by Erin

My popular corn spoon bread is now gluten-free version with an extra kick of spice thanks to jalapenos and pepperjack cheese!

Every time I make my corn spoon bread it is annihilated. I’ve even witnessed people wagering who gets the last pieces. So when I made it most recently, I decided to be a little more inclusive by making a gluten-free version because one of my best friends is celiac. And then I spiced it up quite literally with chopped jalapenos and pepperjack cheese on top. Perfect with chili and all that BBQ smoking and grilling that will be going on in our backyard this summer.

In basement news, we had to empty everything out hopefully for the last time (until we move out), as we had a perimeter drain and sump pump installed to help thwart any further flooding. As a result we look like hoarders will all of our stuff taking up every bit of free space upstairs but hopefully it will be worth it! Especially with all this rain we’ve been having lately. ::crosses fingers::

Hi, you mention muffin mix in the description, but I do not see it in the list of ingredients??

My apologies that is a typo as I adapted this recipe from another that uses a boxed mix instead of from scratch. Thanks for point it out so that I could fix it.
