Western Round-Up

This is one of my favorite recipes out of my Best-Ever Casseroles cookbook. It's basically a southwestern chili topped with a cornbread crust. I think the key is the type of cornbread mix you use. I use Firenza Traditional Sweet Cornbread mix. It is the best cornbread mix ever!!! It's hard to find in the grocery store, but it can be ordered online at www.great-recipes.com. It's not cheap, but it is worth every penny ($5.00/box). One box is perfect if you double the recipe and use a very large skillet, just make sure to prepare the cornbread per the instructions on the box. It makes great leftovers.
