    1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. 
    2. In a large oven safe skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef. Once the beef has begun to caramelize, add the onions, green pepper, tomatoes, and garlic; saute on medium-high heat for 4 to 5 minutes until caramelized, adding some oil if needed. Season with salt and add the dry seasonings, or 1 ¾ teaspoons of prepared taco seasoning; stir until well coated. 
    3. Add the jalapeños and black beans along with the enchilada sauce; stir in the sour cream and cheese along with the fresh spinach. Taste and adjust the seasoning then set aside.
    4. In a separate bowl whisk together the cornmeal, flour, salt, cinnamon, baking powder and baking soda. Whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, honey and melted butter and gently stir into the dry ingredients. Fold in the corn. Add ¼ cup (or so) of water if the batter is too thick to spread. 
    5. Spread the batter over the beef filling in the skillet and bake for 20-25 minutes. Top with salsa, sour cream, chopped scallion, cilantro and avocado.
