Julie Hodge


1 (8.5 oz.) Jiffy Corn Muffin mix
1/3 c. milk
1 egg
1 (4 oz.) can diced green chiles
1 (8 oz.) can corn or creamed corn
1 lb. ground beef
1 tsp. ground cumin
2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 1/4 c. enchilada sauce
2 c. shredded cheese of your choice
Optional Toppings:
Sour Cream
Shredded Cheese
Lime wedges

Preheat oven to 400 . Whisk together Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix, milk and egg. Gently fold in chiles and corn. Pour into greased baking pan ( 9 x 13 or large cast iron skillet). Bake until set, about 20-25 minutes.
While cornbread is baking, combine beef with spices and saute in a skillet over medium heat until fully cooked, about 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.
Once cornbread is done baking, reduce oven heat to 350 . Poke holes in cornbread with a fork and pour enchilada sauce over it. Top with ground beef and shredded cheese; cover with aluminum foil. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes. Remove foil and broil until cheese begins to brown.
Let cool for 10 minutes before serving with desired toppings.
