Mexican Pot Pie ****

We absolutely love this one! The first time I made it, I kept putting off making it, because I tend to have ADD when it comes to recipes with long lists of ingredients. The one thing it had going for it in that respect was that it had a short directions list, lol. I do love Jiffy in general, and cumin is one of my top 5 spices. Put the two together, and I was sold. Even the super picky 6-year-old asks for seconds. Dh hates black beans, and the kids hate black olives. I get NO complaints on any of that stuff! It's so awesome! It's actually not too terribly unhealthy, either, which is totally awesome, what with dh and I starting diets again. I just used a colby-jack blend, instead of using two different kinds of cheese. Mine also needed the full 30 minutes for the cornbread to set. This one will most definitely be made again!
