Chipotle Cheddar Cornbread

To me,  cornbread is one of those comfort foods.  Especially right out of the oven…with melted butter dripping off. Here’s a cornbread recipe that takes cornbread to the next level….Bam! … may I introduce chipotle pepper and green onion.  With each bite,  a warm heat overtakes your mouth and lingers waiting for the next bite of corny goodness.
