Over the past few years, I've become very fond of cooking with Green Chilies. I've lost count of how many recipes I've made using Green Chilies but this is the first time I recall making Green Chili Bread.
It's not very often that I get to bake with green chilies so when this old recipe was shared with me, I just had to give it a try.
Since this Bread recipe doesn't have any yeast in it, there is no waiting for the dough to rise. While I am calling this a "bread", the consistency is more like cornbread. Regardless of what you call it, it's delicious!
If you love Cornbread as much as I do, make sure you check out my collection of Bread Recipes. Many great cornbread recipes in there.
🥛 Buttermilk Substitution
If you don't have Buttermilk on hand, you can use this trick as a substitute: Add one tablespoon of lemon juice to a measuring cup. Add milk and fill to the 1 cup measurement line. Stir the mixture together and let sit for 5 minutes.
Another option is to use a cultured buttermilk blend. All you need to do is add water. I was very skeptical at first but in a pinch it works great!
