Oh man i am eating this as I type and it is phenomenal! My mother always made things when I was a kid and would never recreate it because she did not remember what she did. We never had the same taste twice, I never could understand it. All that said she made something like this once and I have always wanted it again and now after like 15 years I have fulfilled my craving. Thaank you! lol I did not use peppers, and i used a 7 oz pkg of texas honey sweet cornbread. mmmmmmm mmm!!! Thank you for this I will make this for the rest of my life!
