Cornbread can be part of the Mediterranean Diet, but this skillet cornbread recipe is more of a traditional Mexican or Southwestern U.S. recipe. I love how easy it is to make especially if you have a cast iron skillet (it will work size wise in skillets ranging from 7″ to 10″). It can also be baked in a 9″ x 12″ casserole dish. This recipe happens to be gluten-free and full of flavor from the creamed corn and green chilies. If you like spicy, then get the hot or medium green chilies. Otherwise, go for mild. One of my favorite things to do with this cornbread is to make huevos rancheros. Top warm cornbread with our black bean stew recipe and eggs fried in olive oil. A little Greek yogurt and salsa go nicely with this as well. Enjoy!

“This program is a way of life, one which I have adopted successfully, and more importantly one which I have sustained for over one year now. My weight remains steady at 160 pounds (down from 216). My energy levels rival that of someone 20 years younger than me (I’m now 57), enabling me to exercise in any way that I desire, from lifting weights to intense cardio sessions.”
— Michael Little
“After completing my 10-week program, I had a regularly-scheduled appointment with my doctor. Because my cholesterol has always been above the normal range (229 last year) I requested that she test it again this year. I’m happy to report that my total cholesterol dropped to 169, which is in the normal range, and all my other numbers improved as well.”
