Delicious and Easy to make! I increased the jalapenos a bit, and we also served it with salsa spooned over the top. Will enjoy the leftovers and will make again! I think it would also be a good appetizer if cut into bite sized pieces.

LOVE this recipe! I sought this out to replace an old recipe I lost a few years ago, very similar in concept. The cornbread in this one is even more delicous than the old recipe so I'm actually happy I lost that one! One thing I carried over from the old recipe, however, is adding about 1/2 cup of salsa to the meat mixture - this makes it especially moist and flavorful and doesn't interfere with the cornbread rising at all.

Cheesy and meaty with a little bit of zing. Wonderful to eat on a cold night! Great comfort casserole!

I made this the other night and it was awesome. I couldn't find a 13*9 in pan so I had to cook it longer but it was worth it!!!
