Cornbread becomes 100% Latino with this spicy twist! (EXCLUSIVE VIDEO)

This is an amazing cornbread. It has a Latin twist: jalapeño pepper that I cannot resist, along with sharp cheddar cheese. You can literally make it in half hour including the preparation of all ingredients and the baking time. My children love it with honey for breakfast. It makes the perfect side dish for a dinner with pork ribs. I love it to accompany a good bowl of lentil soup. Check the video for step by step directions.
