      1 lb New York sharp cheddar cheese 

Preheat oven to 300°. Coat a large glass baking dish with cooking spray.
Layer tortillas in the dish to cover the bottom and 

sides as completely as possible.
Brown the Ground Chuck. Drain fat and run under hot water to get rid of the
rest of the fat on the meat. In a large pot, blend 

chuck, chilies, tomatoes, corn, broccoli, burrito seasoning, Ranch Style
beans, cumin, chili powder, sage and onion with 2 cups 

of water. Simmer.
Mix the packages of Corn Bread mix with the eggs and milk until there are no
lumps. Add 1 cup of water and mix till well blended 

and thin.

Pour the simmering mixture into the pan carefully making sure coverage is
even. Cover with sharp cheddar cheese in an even 

layer, and then pour the cornbread mixture over the top of the cheese.

Cook until cornbread is golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.
Refrigerates well.

Options and substitutions: Canned Mushrooms may be added. Ground sirloin or
ground longhorn may be used to bring the fat down. 

Fat free cheese may be used. Milk can be whole or skim. Crushed tortilla or
corn chips may be used instead of tortillas for the 

bottom layer.
