Mom’s Mexican Cornbread (southernbite)

1/2 lb ground beef
3 T vegetable oil
1 c self-rising corn meal
1 c buttermilk
1 14.75 oz) can cream style corn
2 eggs well beaten
1 large onion, chopped
1 4 oz can sliced jalapenos, drained (opt)
1 c shredded cheddar cheese

Add the vegetable oil to the bottom of a 10″ cast iron skillet. Place the skillet in the oven and preheat the oven to 350°. While the oven and skillet preheat, brown the ground beef then drain the grease away. In a large bowl, combine the cornmeal, buttermilk, cream style corn and beaten eggs until well mixed. Once the skillet is hot (a pinch of cornmeal sprinkled in the skillet will sizzle when it’s ready), pour half of the batter into the bottom of the skillet. Sprinkle the ground beef, chopped onion and jalapenos over the batter. Sprinkle the cheese over the other ingredients then top with other half of the batter. Bake for 45 – 50 min or until golden brown. Allow the cornbread to cool slightly in the pan before flipping out onto a serving plate. Makes a great side to soup or just by itself. Note to Me: Saute onions with ground beef.
