Creole Cornbread

The Gluten Free Cookbook by Phaidon Publishing
Corn bread is a favorite across all the American South, and in New Orleans it gets a delicious upgrade with traditional Creole and Cajun flavors. This recipe uses cooked rice in addition to cornmeal and canned creamed corn for extra richness, and is flecked with jalapeños for just the right amount of heat.
