Popular food of the Cajuns is cornbread and ground meat is common as many Cajuns raised their own beef. It was only natural that someone would add the two together to create this fine dish.
- 2 boxes Jiffy Cornbread Mix
- 1 bell pepper, chopped
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 1/2 lbs ground beef, seasoned to your liking
- 3 jalapenos, chopped and seeded
- 6 slices of cheese
- 1 (15 oz) can cream style corn
- Cajun spices
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a large bowl, make cornbread mix as instructed on the box and add the cream corn and chopped jalapeno pepper.
Season the ground beef with Cajun spices (if none available use salt, black pepper, cayenne, garlic and onion powder...all or any combination).
Brown the ground beef, adding the bell pepper and onion, cooking until the pepper and onion are softened.
Lightly spray a 13x9 casserole dish and pour one-half of the cornbread mix. Put the meat mixture on top. Next layer the cheese. The final layer is the rest of the cornbread mix. Bake at 400 degrees until golden brown. Goes well with Red Beans and Rice.
