Southwestern Casserole

I've been making this casserole for years and I never get tired of it. It combines several of my favorite flavors, barbeque sauce, cheese, and cornbread into one yummy dish. Originally I used ground beef but I have since begun substituting ground turkey and I can't tell much difference at all.

The whole things takes about 20 minutes to prepare and about 30 minutes to cook, also it is all in one pan so cleanup is pretty easy.


Southwestern Casserole
1.2 lbs. Ground Turkey
1 Onion chopped
3 Jalapenos chopped fine
10 oz Frozen Peas
10 oz Frozen Corn
3/4 bottle of BBQ Sauce (Famous Dave's Rich and Sassy)
8 oz Shredded 2% Cheddar Cheese
1 1/2 teaspoons Cayenne Pepper
Cornbread Crust
1 1/2 cups Cornmeal
1/2 cup Flour
3 teaspoons Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Salt
2 Eggs
1 cup Buttermilk
In a skillet saute onion and jalapenos until they begin to brown then add in the turkey and cook until turkey has browned. Add in the corn and peas and mix together then turn off the heat and add in the cheese, bbq sauce, and cayenne pepper. Set aside.
In a bowl combine the dry crust ingredients then add in the eggs and buttermilk. Mix together until well blended and pour into a 13x9 inch pan that has been greased.
Cornbread batter
Spoon the filling over the crust until crust is covered then put in the oven and bake at 350 for about 20-30 minutes (when cornbread crust is done and the cheese in the filling is melted).
Just out of the oven
