This is the best dish I've made in weeks! Easy and REALLY tasty! Save a few bucks and sub the red bell ($3.99!) out for a small jar of roasted red peppers ($1.99!). The cornbread is sweet and the meat is spicy - perfect! Oh and by the way, bake for 20-25 min. ^_^

This recipe was great - it is defiately going to be a repeat in my house. I was worried because I had to make some substitutions, but it was still good. I didn't have canned tomatoes so I cut up a small tomato and added 8oz of ketchup -- I also didn't have the spice cumin, so I substituted it with 3/4 teaspoons of caraway seeds. It was still great! Thanks for the recipe!

ladycat38, this was an excellent dish! I reluctantly cut back a bit on the spices in deference to DD's tastes. I had only a larger size cornmeal mix, so baked the meal in a 7 by 11" pan & cooked it about 7 minutes longer than the recipe directed. I forgot to add the cheese layer, so when serving, I inverted the casserole & sprinkled the cheese over the meat layer on the plates. It worked just fine. We all had 2nds & I can't remember the last time that happened. Thanks!
