A Pampered Chef recipe with an easy cornmeal crust.

Top Review by Olive

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!
