I liked it, but my family didn't. I guess I'll have to table this recipe until I'm only cooking for myself.

I made something very close to this exact recipe the other night. Only I browned my meat on the stove with the onion, corn and taco seasoning. I only used about 4 tablespoons of the salsa but then i added a can of rotels diced tomatoes with green chilies in it. I also added 3 dashes of crushed cayenne pepper to help add a little heat to the meat. (Okay...i also sprinkled some garlic powder on my meat as it was cooking. My fiancee loves garlic powder on most everything). After it was done, i spread the cornbread mixture on top. I also added about a 1/4 cup of honey to sweeten the cornbread for a contrast to the spicey meat. I cooked as directed by the Jiffy box of cornbread. Then it was served with salsa and low fat sour cream on the side.
