Minimal, incidental changes... Ground turkey for ground beef, serrano for poblano peppers, fresh market salsa from the grocery store instead of jarred salsa, canned corn for frozen, and butter for greasing the pan. Also I shredded my own queso blanco. So really I just made something based off of this recipe and it was great!
Its a great idea because you can put any fillers you want in the meat sauce. I might try chorizo next time, or a mix or chorizo and beef. In the video Chef John says to fill your meat sauce layer to the edge of the pan, and then on the next cornbread layer to avoid the edges in order to allow venting. I tried something different, and it works well to keep the meat sauce in the middle with a 0.5in space away from the edge of the pan all the way around. Then the next layer is filled as normal. That's how I got the layering pictured.
I also did half the recipe and still got two 9in circle baking pans out of it.
