Mexican Spoon Bread

Use a 10" Dutch Oven, 13 briquettes on top, 9 on bottom

Grease the Dutch Oven sides and bottom, then lightly coat with flour.

In a large bowl, mix the cream corn, milk, melted shortening, eggs and onion. Blend in the corn meal, flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and sugar.

In a smaller bowl, combine the green chiles and cheese

Pour half the batter into the Dutch Oven. Sprinkle the top with half of the chili-cheese mixture. Add the rest of the batter and top with the remaining chili-cheese mixture. Cover with lid and place over 9 briquets. Add 13 briquets to top. After 20 minutes, remove the oven from the bottom heat. Finish baking with top heat only. Cool slightly, cut into wedges and serve warm.
