Cast Iron Skillet Green Chile Cornbread: A Recipe by Lainie Eilenberger, Top Real Estate Agent

Howdy, y'all! I'm Lainie Eilenberger, your go-to real estate expert in the beautiful lands of Lubbock and West Texas. Out here, we know a thing or two about the comforts of home, the warmth of community, and the charm that makes a place truly special. It's a land where family and traditions hold the heart of every neighborhood, and it's my pleasure to connect folks with the perfect place to call home.

Today, I'm thrilled to share with you a recipe that's as dear to me as the homes I help people find: Cast Iron Skillet Green Chile Cornbread. This dish isn't just about food; it's about the flavors and character of West Texas. It's as charming, full of spirit, and welcoming as the One Ford Road subdivision in Lubbock, Texas. A place where modern conveniences meet a vintage township, and neighbors become lifelong friends.


  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 4 tsp baking powder

  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1 cup buttermilk

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

  • 1/2 cup green chiles, roasted and chopped


  1. Preheat the Oven: Set your oven to 400°F (200°C). Place your cast-iron skillet inside to get nice and hot.

  2. Mix Dry Ingredients: In a large bowl, whisk together the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt.

  3. Add the Wet Ingredients: In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, and melted butter. Stir in the roasted green chiles.

  4. Combine: Mix the wet ingredients into the dry until just combined.

  5. Bake: Carefully remove the hot skillet from the oven. Pour the batter into the skillet, smoothing the top. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown.

  6. Serve with Love: Let cool for a few minutes, slice, and enjoy with friends and family.
