“This is another of my adopted recipes. I have made this recipe for years. We always called it "Tex-Mex Cornbread". I cook mine in a large cast iron chicken fryer skillet which gives it a really nice crusty bottom. I then slice it in pie shaped wedges. It's very good served with chili or a hearty soup.”
