Recipe Notes

Cornbread with the spiciness of peppers is wonderful and the combination of the smoky, savory chipotle and the spicy bite of poblano is perfect. The first time we tested this recipe we didn’t have quite enough buttermilk on hand so we made up the difference (about a half cup) with regular milk. We didn’t think it would make much of a difference, but boy did it: the cornbread was pretty dry. The second time around we made sure to have enough buttermilk and it’s clear that the right amount of buttermilk made a difference: this is much moister. Be sure that you have enough of all your ingredients on hand!
