This was a great base recipe. A friend of mine made something very similar with ground italian sausage instead of ground beef. The spiciness was great. I also add in some salsa and more chillies and spices to add flavor. I think i used cayanne pepper and chili powder. After it's baked the the corn bread topping is slightly golden brown, top with sour cream!

I changed an awful lot--late and I didn't have everything. It's a long way to the store. So, after that - it was great, and fast! I used refried beans in place of both cans of beans having neither. No peppers in the tomatoes either - I'm deathly allergic to them (hubby puts his in on the side). I upped the cheese layer and made a standard batch of cornbread instead of mix (don't use mixes). Cut down to four servings (for two) had enough for a rerun for lunch. We really like it and hubby said "save it!"
