Mexican Cornbread

1 cup yellow cornmeal
1/2 cup flour
1/2 Teaspoon salt
1/2 Teaspoon baking soda
1/2 Teaspoon baking powder
1 Tablespoon sugar
Stir in and mix well, the following ingredients:
1 cup milk (buttermilk or low fat preferred)
1 egg
2 Tablespoons of Finely chopped Green (or Red) Bell Peppers
3 Tablespoons hot bacon grease (or melted butter or margarine)

As soon as this is mixed, pour it into the hot oven and cover it. Check often. It should cook about 10 minutes or until the top is a dull (not shiny) and the cornbread is firm. This requires a very hot, pre-heated oven (extra coals on top, normal on bottom) , and cooking must be closely watched to avoid burning.
