  • 2 cups yellow cornmeal
  • ½ cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 Tablespoons bacon drippings
  • 6 Tablespoons chunky picante sauce (Pace, if possible. This is Texoma cornbread!)
  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Put the drippings or oil in a cast iron skillet and place it in the oven for a few minutes until it’s sizzling.
  3. Mix together dry ingredients. Set aside.
  4. Whisk egg and milk. Mix with dry ingredients, mix in picante sauce. Take cast iron skillet out of oven, pour hot oil into batter and mix.
  5. Pour batter into cast iron skillet, bake in oven for 20 minutes. Cornbread should be brown on top and pulling away from the sides of the skillet.
