I am a BIG texture person and was so surprised no one had mentioned the texture of this dish in their review. It was, to me, gooey - much like a tamale. Nothing like real cornbread. It not overly exciting of a dish and the kids didn't eat it. As far as bland goes, my hot sauce took care of that.
Great recipe very simple to make and tasty, I used Fire and Brimstone chilli powder to give it a kick and it was hot. The cornbread worked well with self-raising flour. Overall I found it simple and tasty.
This wasnt bad but it was kinda bland. I did enjoy the cornbread. The beans need some work if i make it again...which is unlikely.
