Deb’s Mexican Cornbread

Deb's Mexican Cornbread I Mommy Hates Cooking

This recipe comes from my former supervisor, Deb.  I have a feeling she was full of great recipes and luckily she shared a few with me before I resigned from that particular job.

This one has been on my list to try for months, actually since last winter and I am just now getting to try it!  My husband and I were both impressed, this was tasty and easy!  The recipe does call for white corn meal; however, I used yellow.
