    This recipe was almost exactly the way I remember my aunt making mexican corn bread for us in Texas. The only thing I changed was that I added a can of Mexican style chili beans in with the hamburger. My aunt used ranch style beans but I couldn't find those. I also didn't have green peppers, so I added a few jalapenos. very good recipe!!!!!!!
