Okay, so I love to make most things from scratch… sauces, stocks, pretty much everything I make. Therefore, I must come clean. These jalapeno cheddar cornbread start out with a boxed cornbread mix. I know! I know! But you can’t even tell. I spruce them up so much with spicy jalapenos, cheddar cheese, and green onions. They are the best accompaniment to chili I have found yet.
This quesadilla is inspired by my older brother Kyle because he always orders unique combinations on his pizza, usually involving pineapple. I always thought it was weird because my favorite toppings were pretty traditional…cheese, sausage, pepperoni… etc. Pineapple belongs in pineapple upside down cake, not pizza! Wrong! This combination changed my mind. Kyle ordered a pizza with bbq sauce, bacon, jalapenos, and pineapple. Seriously, one of the best flavor combinations ever.
