Corn Bread Mix

1-2 Packages of Jiffy Corn bread mix 
follow the instructions on box
Mix dry ingredients together
Pour mixture into baking sheet but make sure you spray with Pam
or simply grease sheet
so bread doesn't stick when done.
Add the first half of corn bread mix
onto a 8 or 9 inch deep baking sheet
then add some carne con chili and
layer it as evenly as possible on top of corn mixture.
After you do that you add the second
half of the mix on top spreading evenly to
cover the chili con carne.

Oven should be at about 350 degrees
and takes about 30-40 min
or Until golden brown on top
When done cut into small square pieces
let cool and serve! 

I tried to explain it as easy as possible
