Tex-Mex Corn Bread

Tex-Mex Corn Bread is filled with the wonderful flavors of peppers set in a deep corn base. It is a great side for any meal and will always compliment the main dish of the meal. I have been making this recipe for years and had never thought to put it on the blog until a friend asked me for the recipe recently.That is the way most of my recipes have been written, someone wants the recipe and it has to come out of my head on to the paper. I have learned that many of you are the same way. I sure hope that you enjoy the recipe.
