- 1 cup yellow cornmeal
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted and cooled
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
- 1 cup roasted and diced Hatch green chiles skins removed
- Cooking spray or additional butter for greasing the pan
- Preheat the Bull Grill to medium-high (approximately 375°F). Grease an 8×8-inch baking dish with cooking spray or butter.
- Whisk together the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl until well combined.
- Whisk together the buttermilk, melted butter, and eggs in a separate bowl until smooth.
- Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; the batter will be slightly lumpy.
- Gently fold in the grated cheddar cheese and diced roasted Hatch green chiles. The chiles’ smoky and slightly spicy flavors will infuse the cornbread with a delightful kick.
- Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish, spreading it evenly.
- Once baked, remove the cornbread from the grill and let it cool in the baking dish for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
- Serve the Hatch Chile Cornbread warm as a side dish to complement barbecued meats, or enjoy it as a delicious snack.
- Store any leftover cornbread in an airtight container at room temperature for 2-3 days. To reheat, simply warm slices in the microwave or oven until heated.
