Gluten Free Jalapeno Cheese Cornbread

This gluten free cornbread tastes delicious when served with warm soups or stews. Cornbread is especially popular when following a gluten-free diet because of its texture, flavour and diversity. I used jalapenos and cheese, but you can add olives, cranberries, sundried tomatoes or feta cheese, the list is endless for creating your personal cornbread. I recommend buying certified organic cornmeal for GMO-free
