Corn Meal

“This is a dish that is mighty easy to fix whether you are in your home or just have an old fire out in the open. An old Mexican guide gave it to me and it is one that I have enjoyed many nights after coming back to camp dead tired when we weren’t lucky enough to get any game.” — Gary Cooper
