Beef and Cornbread Squares

"I love cornbread, and this just fits the bill. Almost a cold weather recipe, but when you makes this, it becomes an any time recipe! I make this all the time for when my usual Monday Night Football Armchair Quarterbacks come over! We seldom get to go to their houses because they want what I cook! They always say, "but you cook so good". I'm sure a lot of you know what I mean! I hope you like it, and let me know how it goes for your own MNFB crowd! Enjoy! This doubles and triples great. Here's a tip: I used to buy the cans of tomatoes and green chilis, such as Rotel), but since they are pricey, I buy the tomatoes and green chilis separately. You will get more for the money and you will have enough to double or triple the recipe. If I have leftover chilis and tomatoes, I freeze them for something else. Top this with my salsa #218314!"

  1. This was bursting with flavor and fun to put together. We didn't have football going, but it's Monday night and I had plenty of hungry eaters. Everyone thought this was great. It didn't seem like much batter when I assembled this, but the cornbread baked up generous and golden. This is perfect for cornbread lovers, and would be heaven on a wintry night. Thanks so much -- I look forward to making more of your recipes! (P.S. My pieces weren't square because I put it in an oval dish)


I would like to welcome you to my recipes. I have been with since 10/05. My beloved husband, Tom, passed away 3 years ago. My world stopped. It's taken me all this time to find my way back to life without him. I have been so blessed to have found my second, once in a lifetime. I've met an amazing man who is so good to me. We moved from Las Vegas, Nevada to Bullhead City, Az. in February, and we love it here. I have worked at Bally's and Paris hotel.casinos, in Las Vegas. I have seen some very famous entertainers, including Liza Minnelli, Penn and Teller, Ray Liotta, Dr. J (Julius Erving), Frank Sinatra and his wife Barbara Marx. and many, many more. Cooking is my passion, and I am slowly, but surely beginning to venture into the world of baking. To me, cooking is so much easier because baking is so much more exact. I love to make Italian and Mexican food the best, followed by Chinese and last, but by far the least, good old American food! How can you beat chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and gravy?? I love to find several recipes and put my own spin on them and create a new recipe.
