Mexican Cornbread

This recipe came from my husband's grandmother. I had enjoyed it for years at her house and failed many attempts to replicate it. Finally, one day I just asked her for the recipe and she gladly shared it with me. She's gone now, I'm so happy I got the recipe from her while I could. Hope you love it as much as we do.
