Jalapeno Cornbread Stuffing

7 c. jalapeno cornbread, crumbled *recipe follows
4 c. toast cubes
3 hard-cooked eggs, chopped
1/4 c. unsalted butter
2 c. finely chopped onion
1 tsp. finely minced garlic
1 1/2 c. finely chopped green pepper
1 c. finely chopped celery
salt and freshly ground pepper
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 c. chicken broth

Combine cornbread, toast cubes and chopped eggs in large bowl; toss lightly to mix well. Set aside.

Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat; add onion and garlic and saute until softened. Add green pepper and celery and cook until crisp-tender, about three minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Let cool slightly.

Add onion mixture to cornbread and blend well. Stir in eggs. Blend in enough broth to moisten lightly. Use to stuff turkey or chicken.
