Ingredients:  
Cornbread topping:
3/4 cup cornmeal
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon baking powder

The Filling:
1 pound of your favorite browned or already cooked meat
1 (15-ounce) can drained and rinsed black beans
1 (14.5-ounce) can fire roasted tomatoes
1 (15-ounce) can drained corn
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin

Directions:
Directions:
For best results, use a 4-quart slow cooker. Spray your crockpot with cooking spray. Dump in the filling ingredients--cheese, too!-- and stir well to distribute the spices. You will not be able to stir this again, so please check to see that the spices aren't in a clump anywhere. In a separate bowl, mix together the cornbread topping. When finished, pour evenly over the filling, spreading with a spatula if needed. Cover and cook on low for 4 to 7 hours or on high for 2 to 4 hours. Once done take the lid off and let it stay open for about 15 minutes before cutting into.
