Rose's Southwestern Corn Spoon Bread
is a meal in itself.
Chock full of flavors from
corn, roasted red bell pepper, onion, garlic, cheese and
chipotle chile; a light and airy
spoon bread holds
this savory mixture together.
I knew I should have bought an onion
when I pulled these out of the cupboard.
Another trip to the store for an onion
and packet of band-aids.
A very sharp knife won and my thumb lost.
The topping is my favorite part.
I would also love this as a plain
cornbread with cheesy topping.
It's a delightful dish and fun to make.
I always wondered what chipotle chiles
in adobo sauce were used for and now
I know at least one dish.
Looking at all the items
in the Hispanic section of
my grocery store is great fun but I
haven't a clue how they are used.
So this was a new adventure.
