Scaled this recipe down for two and added a few ingredients. Used a 10 oz can of tomatoes with chilies, a can of black olives, added 1 teaspoon each garlic powder, cumin and onion powder, 1 cup of taco cheese and omitted chili powder. Used 1 egg, 1 cup milk and 2/3 cup cornmeal. Used 7 ozs of fully-cooked smoked turkey sausage. I processed the whole recipe in a food processor and skipped the stove top step. Cooked this at 375F in a 9-13 Pyrex pan for between 30-40 minutes Done when knife inserted in center comes out clean). The rest step is mandatory. Tried this recipe before in a deeper pan and it took nearly two hours to cook.

AND that is the end of this. If the phone doesn't ring? It's me. If you are looking to ask me a question? I'm not here. I won't answer. I do not assure you that the ingredients, amounts or even the directions in any recipe under my two accounts are correct due to the bad directional pointer in the database that is causing problems with the amounts or ingredients. I will also NOT assure you they are correct when the site claims they are fixed. Use at your own risk. They will be correct on my site. End of story. Sigh..
