A Mexican cornbread pie recipe. This came from a recipe i got from a friend and adapted it to make it easier and just as good. I have use mexican cornbread mix and other cornbread mixes but i like Jiffy best.

I cooked this simply because the name of the recipe intigued me-and then when I saw the ingredients, I knew my family would love it-and boy did they! I used Martha White mexican cornbread mix-good stuff! I probably had more than 2 lbs of ground beef, so mine was drier than it should've been, but it didn't stop everyone from inhaling it. We simply served it topped with salsa and sour cream as suggested. It makes a huge pan, we ate several meals from it. I should've looked at the servings, I probably would've halved the recipe, but no worries, it reheated wonderfully. Thanks for a good easy dinner.

- Top with ground beef mixture.
- Top ground beef with shredded cheese.
- Mix second box of cornbread as package directs and spread on top of cheese.
