Beef and Cornbread Bake

Recipe found on

I've been using this recipe with Grandma's Buttermilk Cornbread instead of using the packaged cornbread.  If you are using the 2 quart dish half the cornbread recipe so it's not too much and it doesn't overflow over the sides.  Also, green salsa works really well instead of the picante sauce.  I have also added a can of black beans drained and rinsed.  This will dramatically change the flavor but my baby boy loves his beans.
