** Chef’s Tip – After roasting chiles place into a bowl and cover with plastic wrap, that will help steam off the charred parts, leaving the chile intact.
Heat your Big Green Egg to 350˚ F
While Grill is heating up, spray a Cast Iron Skillet with cooking spray
Add all the dry ingredients into a bowl
Mix well to combine
Using a new bowl, place the softened butter and crema into the bowl and mix until combined
Add the milk, diced chilies, corn kernels and cheese
Mix until combined
Allow to rest for approx. 5 minutes
Carefully add half of the wet mixture into the dry mixture and stir until combined
Add the rest of the wet mixture into the dry mixture and mix until fully incorporated and just mixed
Pour this mixture into the cast iron skillet and level out if needed
Place into the BGE at 350˚ F
Cook for 35-45 minutes or until desired doneness is reached, checking for doneness at the 40 minute mark
Check for doneness by inserting a clean, dry, toothpick (or skewer) into the center and removing it clean
Using heat proof gloves, carefully remove the cornbread and bring into the kitchen
Rest for minimum of 10 minutes to allow the cornbread to cool and firm up
Serve with honey butter if desired
