Jalapeno Cornbread Bundt Dressing contains jalapenos, chicken, onions and delicious seasonings. To make a pretty presentation, place small bowl in center. Fill with Homemade Cranberry Sauce, shredded chicken, gravy or sliced jalapenos.
Although this dressing holds together to form a bundt shape, it isn’t dry. Evaporated milk, cream of chicken soup and cream of mushroom soup add delicious flavor and moisture.
If you prefer a very moist dressing, drizzle each individual slice with gravy or hot chicken stock before serving. Do not drizzle whole bundt cake because liquids will soften the shape.

In large bowl, thoroughly combine crumbled cornbread, crumbled biscuits (or bread slices) and shredded chicken. Set aside.
In medium sized saucepan, combine chicken broth, condensed cream of mushroom soup, condensed cream of chicken soup, and onions. Simmer over medium-low heat for 5 minutes. Stir constantly.
Pour warm mixture over bread crumbs and chicken. Add 3 tablespoons of evaporated milk, beaten eggs, sage, ground black pepper, salt, chopped jalapeno peppers, and celery (if using). Stir mixture until thoroughly combined. NOTE: Place sliced jalapeno peppers in a bowl. Set aside.
Spray 5-cup bundt pan (aluminum) with vegetable oil cooking spray. Grease a cast iron bundt pan with shortening. Do not use vegetable oil because the crust will stick. Place in hot oven for 5 minutes. Preheating helps to thoroughly bake crust.
Carefully remove hot bundt pan from hot oven. Pour in batter. Reduce oven temperature to 375. Bake 20-25 minutes or until edges turn golden brown. Avoid baking too long to prevent dryness.
Remove from oven. Cool at least 10 minutes. Place plate on top of bundt pan. Flip over. Tap to release.
Bundt shape should be firm. Place a small bowl of cranberry sauce, sliced jalapenos or gravy in center. Makes a lovely presentation on dinner table.
