This was quick and easy to make. I added a bit of chili powder to the cornbread mixture for a little more flavor to the crust. I also used shredded Mexican blend cheese instead of colby-jack. This makes a very delicious meal that can be suited to individual tastes. Thanks for posting this recipe, QueenJellyBean!
This was rather good. Made as the recipe states, it was greatly enjoyed by myself, my hubby and our two children, ages 9 & 5. Plus, it is one of those basic recipes that can be easily altered to suit an individual's taste. Good one to keep on hand.
This is a wonderfully easy to make crust that has great texture. I didn't have any milk so I used water, and it was still great to work with. In place of the beef I used refried beans. Super simple, fast and delicious! I found this recipe in The Pampered Chef Doris Christopher's Stoneware Sensations. Thanks for posting this!
