Get Cooking!

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Spray a 9×13-inch casserole dish (Corningware is my Fav) with cooking spray. It will stick to your pan if you don’t!
  3. Cook ground beef in a skillet (Lodge Cast Iron is my Fav) over medium-high heat until brown.
  4. Stir in poblano peppers, salt, salsa, oregano, enchilada sauce, and chipotle powder; cook and stir until beef is crumbly and no longer pink, about 10 minutes. It will look liquidy, and that’s ok, the corn bread will soak it up while baking. 
  5. Mix both packages of corn bread mix in a large bowl with 2 eggs, 2/3 cup of milk, and brown sugar. Whisk to combine.
  6. Spread 1/2 the prepared corn bread mixture into the bottom of prepared baking dish. Sprinkle 1/2 of both cheeses on top of corn bread mixture, then pour the beef mixture a top of that.
  7. Spoon the other 1/2 of the corn bread mix on top of the beef and carefully spread over the top with a spoon, leaving about half an inch from the edges of the pan. Then top with the rest of the shredded cheese.
  8. Cover with foil and bake in the preheated oven at 350 degrees F for 50-60 minutes.

    Making this today but wanting to freeze it for another time. How would you recommend I freeze this? Baked first and then frozen; or frozen raw then baked after defrosted when ready to use?

    Thanks!

      Hi Kelsey! I have frozen this before it was cooked and it did great! I wouldn’t recommend baking then freezing because I bet the cornbread would get tuff. Hope you love it!!
