       Title: New Mexico Spoon Bread
  Categories: Breads, Southwest
       Yield: 1 batch
  
       1 cn Cream style corn
     3/4 c  Milk
     1/3 c  Melted shortening
   1 1/2 c  Cornmeal
       2    Eggs, slightly beaten
     1/2 ts Soda
       1 ts Baking powder
       1 ts Salt
       1 ts Sugar (optional)
   1 1/2 c  Grated cheese
       4 oz Green chile, chopped (remove
            -the seeds and devein)
  
   Mix all ingredients. Pour the batter into a greased cast iron skillet. Bake
   at 400 degrees F in oven for 45 minutes; cool slightly, slice like a pie,
   and serve.
   
   For those who don't want or have the time to prepare from scratch, I have
   had excelent results by useing 2 packages of cornbread mix (the kind in a
   tear open envelope, not the box) prepared as on the package, then stiring
   in the cream corn, green chile, and cheese just before pourin it into the
   skillet. Use the same oven temp and cooking time as described above ( the
   time indicated on the package needs to be increased because of the added
   ingredients.
