Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Looking for some Tex-Mex comfort food? Look no further. This is delicious! The iron skillet gives the edges of the corn bread a nice crunch. The meat, bean and veggie topping is flavorful and the cheese on top brings it all together. Yum!

Ingredients

1/2 lb
ground beef or turkey
1/2 c
chopped onion
1/2 c
chopped bell pepper
1 can(s)
black beans (15 ounce)
1 c
salsa
1 c
self rising cornmeal
1/2 tsp
baking soda
1 c
buttermilk
1
egg
2 c
Mexican blend shredded cheese
2 Tbsp
taco seasoning mix
1/2 c
sliced black olives
2 tsp
oil or bacon drippings

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 375. Mix up cornmeal, buttermilk, egg, baking soda, 1 cup of cheese and oil. If using an iron skillet, put it in the oven to warm too.
2
While oven heats, brown ground meat, mixing in onions and bell peppers as you get them chopped up. Add the taco seasoning. When the meat is done, mix in the black beans, olives and salsa and set aside.
3
Pour bread batter into greased 10-inch iron skillet or other baking dish. Bake for 5-6 minutes.
4
Spoon bean mixture into center of crust, leaving a 1/2 inch edge. Bake for 15-18 minutes. Top with remaining cheese and bake for another couple of minutes to melt the cheese. Slice and serve with guacamole and sour cream!
