Bisquick Jalapeno Corn Bread Recipes

Native American diets still include corn as a staple, and it was a major source of sustenance for early settlers. Because of its natural leavening qualities, corn became known as a quick bread because of its ability to eliminate the need for yeast. Because corn was considered an inexpensive commodity, cornbread recipes became popular as a way to feed so many for very little. In today’s present time, cornbread recipes are still used often and go with just about any meal you can think of.

Jalapeno Corn Bread Muffin Poppers

Jalapeno Corn Bread Muffin Poppers

This recipe is pretty basic, using a mixture of cornmeal, Bisquick, butter, milk, and honey. Once the recipe comes together, though, there is nothing basic about its taste. This bread bakes up super light and moist and is oh so good when slathered with melted butter. Throwing in ingredients such as jalapenos for heat, cheddar, and cream cheese along with crispy bacon creates such a burst of flavor when you pop them in your mouth that you may find it difficult to eat just one.

Jalapeno Cheddar Corn Bread

This cornbread is savory and spicy, with a touch of sweetness and loads of cheese. You can use any type of cheese, but I prefer the taste of Monterey Jack in this recipe. If you want something spicier, then pepper jack cheese is a great option. Most supermarkets carry pickled jalapenos, but I’ve included an easy ten-minute recipe below if you cannot find any.

Cheesy Jalapeno Bacon Corn Bread

I probably consider this my favorite corn bread recipe. Not only does it have bacon, but the cast-iron skillet gives it a beautiful golden crust. I added chocolate chips as an optional ingredient, but if you don't add them, you are missing out on some serious flavor.

Cook Time 20 minutes
Servings 6 people


  • 4 slices bacon
  • 3 jalapeno peppers (minced)
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • ¾ cup Bisquick
  • 2 tbsp white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup butter (melted)
  • 1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese (divided)
  • 5 green onions (chopped)
  • ¼ cup chocolate chips (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 425ºF.
  • Place four slices of bacon in a cast-iron skillet and cook over medium-high heat. Turn occasionally, until evenly browned on both sides. Drain the bacon slices on paper towels, reserving the bacon grease in the skillet. Spread the grease onto the sides of the skillet using a paper towel.
  • Cook three minced jalapeno peppers in the bacon grease over medium heat until lightly browned, about five minutes. Remove the peppers from the grease and let drain on a paper towel.
  • Combine one cup of cornmeal and one cup of skim milk together in a bowl. Allow the mixture to sit for approximately ten minutes, or until some of the liquid is absorbed.
  • Sift three-quarters of a cup of Bisquick, and two tablespoons of white sugar together in a separate bowl. Whisk two eggs and one-quarter cup of melted butter into the cornmeal mixture.
  • Stir this mixture into the bowl of Bisquick and sugar just until the batter becomes moistened. Fold the jalapeno peppers, one-half cup of pepper jack cheese, one-quarter cup of chocolate chips, and the chopped green onions into the batter. Pour batter into the cast-iron skillet; crumble bacon over top and sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for twenty minutes or a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
