Here's a sliced piece of the Mexican Cornbread Casserole. And the recipe:

1 cup yellow cornmeal
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup milk
2 beaten eggs
1 17oz can creamed-style corn
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 pound ground lean beef
1 16oz can red kidney beans, drained
1/2 of 8oz can tomoto sauce (or try tomato paste)
1/4 tsp garlic powder (or real garlic)
chili powder, cumin to taste

In a bowl, stir together the cornmeal, baking soda, salt; stir in milk, eggs and corn. Stir in cheese and onion, mix until well blended.

In the skillet
Meanwhile in a large skillet, cook beef until browned; drain. Stir in kidney beans, tomato sauce, chili powder, garlic powder, and cumin. Cook until heated through.

Grease and sprinkle a thin layer of cornmeal over the bottom of a 12x7.5X2 inch baking dish (or a 13x9 dish works too). Turn half the cornmeal batter into the dish. Cover with the meat-bean mixture and top with remaining cornmeal batter.
The second layer

Bake in a 350F degree oven for about 45 mintues or till topping is GBD and done. Let sit 5-10 minutes to cool slightly before slicing. Golden Brown and done
Makes about 6 servings.

I add 1 jalapeno or pablano pepper diced, fresh garlic, and 1/2-1 red or green bell pepper, or cubanelle pepper to the meat mixture. Also add some garlic powder and onion powder to it as well.
