I know you were wanting the cornbread recipe too! There's nothing like southern cornbread with your taco soup! This is the Alabama recipe I got from "Pearl" at work. Now you know anyone with the nickname "Pearl" has got a good cornbread recipe!
Preheat your big cast iron skillet (I know ya'll have one) in the oven to 350-375 with some oil or bacon drippings.
Mix together 1 cup self rising flour, 1 cup corn meal, 1 egg, 1 cup buttermilk (no subsitute!).
Pour into hot skillet and bake until it rises and the top is golden brown.
I haven't tried to make this yet but I've eaten plenty of it and it's GOOD!
