Jalapeño Cornbread Bites + Heluva Good! Dip

Thank you Heluva Good! for sponsoring this post.

For those of you who do not already know, I live in Texas. And if you know anything about August in Texas, then you know that I am literally living in an oven. No joke, it is 106°F outside as I type this…. at 9 in the morning. When I walk outside, I feel personally attacked by Mother Nature. So there is nothing like sitting in a chilly, air conditioned room on a sweltering summer day and munching on a delicious treat. Seriously, with my scrumptious Jalapeño Cornbread Bites recipe and Heluva Good! Dip by my side, I actually forget that I am living on the surface of the Sun.

Jalapeño Cornbread Bites + Heluva Good! Dip

Com·fort food (ˈkəmfərt food). A noun. The definition of which is food that provides consolation or a feeling of well-being, typically any with a high sugar or other carbohydrate content and associated with childhood or home cooking. Use it in a sentence – “tired parents tend to eat more comfort foods”. Comfort food defines today’s recipe and dip pairing because that is just what it is. A soothing hug to your stomach to make up for the ungodly heat outside your door. And I can’t think of anything more comforting than dipping a delightful Jalapeño Cornbread Bite into one of the many flavors of Heluva Good! Dips. Without further ado, I present to you the ultimate spicy summer pairing…

Before we get to the step-by-step recipe tutorial, I want you to know that I specifically created these bites to compliment the Heluva Good! Jalapeño Cheddar Dip. It is my absolute favorite flavor the company offers. That being said, I have personally found that all of the Heluva Good! Dips are a crowd-pleaser. From French Onion to Buttermilk Ranch to Bacon Horseradish, they are easily paired with potato chips, veggies, pretzels, tortilla chips, wings… you name it! So make sure to have a few of the flavors in your summer dipping arsenal. Okay now to the recipe tutorial…
