My family liked this recipe. I followed others suggestions to use a 15 oz can of tomato sauce instead of the 8 oz it called for. The next time I make this I'm going to do what another review did and use enchilada sauce instead of the plain tomato sauce.

Pretty dang good. As others said recipe as written is a bit dry and lacking punch. I added a can of rotel and a tsp of Mexene chili powder. Also added some onions with the the beef as well a few hearty shakes of adobo. Besides that it's perfect. Also I wouldn't say a large skillet, a good 10 inch x 3 qt with a tight fitting lid works perfect for this one. Very versatile. Could probably put just about anything in your mix for this one as long as the liquid is close Think a nice loose chili before you top it...

Fluffy, this was really good and super easy. I made this as directed the first time and everyone loved it. The second time, I added a can of mexicorn (corn and green chilis). That was really good too. This recipe is definitely a keeper. Thanks much for sharing.

This was really GOOD! I cook hamburger ahead of time so this came together really quick. We will have this often, thank you!

This is such an easy, tasty weeknight dish. When I made it, I doctored it up a bit...I added garlic, onion and cilantro and a tin of corn. I also misread the direction...because I was in a rush, and used a 15 oz. tin of tomato sauce. To remedy this, I used two packages of corn muffin mix which gave the pie a heartier crust. <br/>Very tasty and easy to make. Thank you for sharing!

This was delicious, while cooking the meat I added chopped onions, canned green chilies, Garlic and cumin,pepper,red pepper flakes, onion powder, chives, an extra can of tomato sauce and half can corn, with all the other ingredients. I like spicy .without the stuff I added it was kinda bland. Put it in a baking dish then spread the uncooked cornbread on top baked 400 for 15 min.. Yum will def make again! Everyone at my house liked it :)

Great recipe! I just rinsed out the 8oz. Tomato Sauce can with water (increasing the liquid content by half) and it came out perfect - can't wait to do this on the campfire in a Dutch Oven!

I "doctored up" the beef a little by adding onions, garlic, olives and some chipotle sauce and this came out great - not the prettiest of meals but how can you go wrong when it includes corn bread and cheese!! NOTE: easy on the layer of cornbread, you don't want it to thick when it cooks.

We really enjoyed this. Only change was it needed more tomato sauce and I felt the meat to cornbread ratio was off so I will increase the amount of ground beef next time. Thanks!!
