I am in Austin and visiting with my oldest daughter. We invented today’s casserole together for dinner tonight. We call it Sloppy Joe Cornbread Casserole.

- 1 1/2 teaspoons chipotle chile powder
- 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
- 2 tablespoons cumin
- 2 tablespoons tomato paste
- 1 tablespoon mustard
- 2 tablespoons ketchup
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup a BBQ sauce (depending on how sloppy you want to be)
- 1/4 cup beef broth or water
- 2 cups grated cheddar or pepper jack cheese
- 1 package corn bread batter prepared according to package directions
What You Do:
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees
- Grease a 2 quart casserole dish

- Spray potatoes with PAM
- Salt and pepper
- Place in oven and set timer for 30 minutes
- Meanwhile heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium high heat
- Saute onion and jalapeno until soft

- Add spices one at a time mixing in completely between each addition
- Continue stirring until browned
- Add tomato paste and stir til completely combined
- Add mustard, ketchup and BBQ sauce stir to combine

- After 30 minutes check potatoes for tenderness and a mild crispness around the edges
- Remove from oven and raise thermostat to 400 degrees
- Add turkey mixture on top of potatoes
- Cover with cheese (reserve 1/4 cup)
- Spread cornbread batter evenly over turkey/cheese mixture-gently so as not to stir the layers

My featured blog for this week is: Miss Information’s Fish Friday Po’Boy. My husband loved NOLA too and my oldest daughter is crazy about it. What a fabulous recipe and I agree with her husband. Mayo on both sides. But to each their own!
This party starts Saturday morning at 8AM.
I am going to ramble about this at some of these fun parties.
