When the main course is all set for your next family get-together, how do you determine what the best side dishes are for serving and sharing? Do you try to pair them according to what type of meat you’re serving (if you’re having meat)? Or do you simply go with what you like best as the cook, and let the family sort out who wants to eat what? We’re fans of the latter, not being all that fussy on what pairs well with everything as much as we’re simply into fine, Texas food. Such is the case with Green Chile Cheese Cornbread. We know it’s a bread, but it also has a taste unlike any other and just a touch of sweetness to make it seem like a treat. That’s why it goes so well with a lot of our main dishes.

The Texas Chef is none other than Stan McDonald, a “chef, traveler extraordinaire, guitar player, philosophizer, and proud Texan.” That’s a title anyone would be proud to have. He has shared some unique recipes which hail from the Lone Star State and are focused on the tastes and foods we’ve come to know and love. His recipes aren’t far-fetched (you won’t be buying an ingredient you’ve never heard of before), and they don’t often require and extraneous effort. But what they do have is a finished product that’s bursting with flavor, savory familiarity, and tastes that are unparalleled. Green Chile Cheese Cornbread is a combination of food and flavors that will melt in your mouth (especially when it’s sliced warm, with a dab of butter spread on top). If you’d like to give it a try and see how it goes over in your household, we’ve got the straight goods, direct from the chef himself!
