"As written, this recipe didn't work for me. I added some chili powder and cumin because when I tasted the meat mixture, it was very bland. Also, the cornmeal batter should be cooked until it is very..." See more, very thick,(use less water) like Italian polenta. It tasted good with added seasonings, but the bottom cornmeal batter layer was mushy and sloppy. I added a layer of cheese on top of the meat mixture and also sprinkled on top of the top layer of cornmeal. However, next time, no cornmeal on bottom and using my substitutions for spices. "
