This Cowboy Cornbread has a Kick! Courtesy of the Jalapeño peppers. This cornbread is not for the weak! You have been warned!
Here’s my version of a Spicy Cowboy Cornbread. If you are not a fan of jalapeños, I suggest you try my Buttermilk Cornbread.
As you can guess, it’s the jalapeños that give this cornbread a kick. If you find it too spicy, simply cut back on the number of jalapeños you add to the batter.
Ever wonder why Jalapeño peppers are so hot? Well check out this page to find out more. The Scoville Scale is the industry standard for measuring how hot a pepper is. You might want to check it out if you are not used to eating Jalapeño peppers.
If you don’t have any Buttermilk on hand and don’t feel like going to your local grocery store, check the Chef’s Notes on the recipe card for an easy substitute.

Wear disposable gloves when handling Hot Peppers.
The capsaicin in hot peppers is what makes peppers hot. If you handle hot peppers gloveless, it’s a guarantee that you’re in for a nasty case of chili burn, both on your fingers and anywhere you rub. Like your face. Ouch!
Even if you wear disposable gloves, be careful about what you touch. The gloves are going to protect your fingers, but touching any part of your body with the gloves after you’ve handled hot peppers can lead to severe chili burn. Resist the temptation to rub your eyes. Wait until you’ve removed your gloves and washed your hands thoroughly with soap.
