Crawfish Cornbread

fullsizeoutput_376dAre you looking for a delicious, yet colorful Christmas bread to accompany your next meal?  

Here I present Crawfish Cornbread, which is filled with red and green peppers, corn, cheese and onions….and of course, crawfish!

You could definitely substitute another cooked meat of your choice, but I love the red of the crawfish for Christmas.
