Tamale casserole

Sometimes it's fun to just throw things together and see what you come up with. Last night's invention was tamale casserole

5 sweet banana peppers (or hot, if you like things spicy)
1 pound sausage
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 can cream-style corn
salt and pepper, to taste
1 box Jiffy mix cornbread (and the stuff to mix it)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

  1. Cut tops off of peppers and remove seeds. Cut in half lengthwise and boil in water for 5 minutes. Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, brown sausage and onions together, until cooked through. Drain off any grease.
  3. Add cream-style corn, salt, pepper, and stir. Pour into a casserole dish.
  4. Sprinkle with half of the cheese.
  5. Place banana peppers on top of sausage mixture.
  6. Sprinkle remaining cheese.
  7. Prepare cornbread mix according the instructions on the box. Spoon over the peppers.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes, until cornbread is baked through.
