Spice up your life--- Kiss your Donkey or make Texas Pot Pie

Kelly Mooches Ezekiel and it is hard to tell who likes it more. Back to the recipe...
Either way, you cannot go wrong. As I made this dish, I was thinking about making it with mashed potatoes spread over the meat mixture instead of the cornbread. I'll try that next. I love the homemade Taco seasoning. You end up with more than recipe calls for, so you have it for next time or another use.

Texas Pot Pie
1 lb ground beef, ground chicken or ground turkey
1 1/2 tsp. cumin
1 1/3 cups chopped green peppers
1 medium chopped onion
1 garlic clove, minced
1 cup mild chunky salsa
1 cup frozen corn kernels
(1 1/4 ounce) homemade Taco seasoning or one envelope taco seasoning mix
1/2 cup cheddar cheese

garnish: cilantro, sour cream, chopped green onion, pickled jalapenos

Brown the ground beef, bell pepper, onion,cumin, taco seasoning and garlic together. Drain any accumulated liquid. Add salsa and corn. Spoon into an 8x8 inch pan. Spoon cornbread onto casserole and bake at 375 for 40 minutes. Test for done-ness with a toothpick. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese, return to oven for 5-10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Serve with chopped Cilantro and sour cream.

1 cup flour
1 cup cornmeal
2 cups buttermilk
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
