Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a small(8") iron skillet w/non stick spray & preheat while you are combining ingredients. Or spray 2 muffin pans(6 muffins each) but don't preheat.

I've made close to this recipe using the recipe below for cornbread muffins using a tiny bit of cornmeal and carbquick. It turned out really well. The only difference probably is we put ground beef in our mexican cornbread to make it more a main dish. This was a major dish at our house pre lowcarb I made it one year for thanksgiving instead of the traditional and my uncle had 3 servings. :D

Here is the cornbread recipe (the only difference is I use calorie countdown milk) but the totals are for the half and half)

Carbquik Cornbread (or muffins)
Servings: 8

2 cups Carbquik
6 tablespoons cornmeal
2 eggs
1/2 cup Splenda
1 cup half and half
1/2 cup butter, melted

Mix all ingredients. Bake 400 degree for 20 minutes in un-greased pan.

oo I can't wait to try this, I finally perfected a chili recipe and learned to live without the beans but I missed the corn bread that usually accompanied it!
