3 TB honey
1 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
2 TB light margarine

1 c. all-purpose flour

In medium bowl, dissolve yeast in water and honey. Stir in margarine, whole wheat flour, cornmeal and salt.  Stir in chilies. Knead in enough additional flour to form a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic. Place in bowl sprayed with cooking spray, cover with warm towel and set in in warm place to rise.
