2 Mexican Cornbread Casserole

My family loves cornbread. In fact, I discovered that if I put unpopped popcorn in my wheat grinder, I get cornmeal! My husband also uses this topping recipe to make cornmeal pancakes, something he absolutely loves. You can use any combination of your favorite taco meat and put this cornbread on top. I had to add a a few minutes to the bake time; insert a toothpick in the middle to check for doneness.

My husband loves this recipe in making cornbread pancakes.
