I have made this twice both with sweat cornbread and savory and I prefer savory. Pictures posted without the sauce. But the sauce is awesome!
I also prefer no cheese but my guests and husband love it with cheese.

How to Make West Texas Cornbread ---With a Twist!

Step-by-Step

  • 1ESSENTIAL TOOLS:
    Skillet, colander for draining, 13 x 9 casserole dish, mixing bowl large for cornbread, mixing bowl medium for green chile sauce, spatula, large spoon and whisk
  • 2In a colander, drain beans and diced tomatoes with green chilies.
  • 3Cook hamburger and diced onions, drain.
    Add back to the skillet the hamburger and onion, drained beans and diced tomatoes with green chilies. Simmer for 10 minutes stirring occasionally. Salt and pepper to taste at this stage.
  • 4Heat oven to 350 degree
    Spray casserole dish. Set aside.
  • 5Combine cornbread mix your choice. Add creamed corn to the mix. I have used both and prefer the savory over the sweet cornbread mix. Using a buttermilk recipe seems to give it that added twang. Just be sure you make a 9 x 13 dish size of cornbread mix for this recipe.
  • 6Spoon half of the cornbread mix into the bottom of the dish. Add hamburger/bean mixture
    Add two cups of shredded cheese.
  • 7Layer whole green chilies over hamburger mixture. Then top with the rest of the cornbread mix. Smooth out.
  • 8Cook until cornbread is done. I have timed it at 45 minutes inserted a knife it came out clean but you judge by your oven. If you cook with cast iron check after 30 it tends to cook quicker.
  • 9In the meantime while baking, combine in medium bowl your one can of green enchilada sauce and sour cream. Add a couple of dashes of Tabasco sauce, salt or red chili powder its your preference though.
  • 10OPTIONS FOR CASSEROLE: two diced jalapenos.
    OPTIONS FOR THE SAUCE: Green chilies diced, green onions diced.
