Unfortunately, this was a flop at my house. It was pretty bland and tasteless, and I was the only one who ended up finishing my plate. To be fair, I've never made a chicken souiza bake before, though, so maybe that is what they all taste like?
This was pretty good, but I would like it to be spicier. I added the whole can of green chiles instead of 2 tbsp, but I think I might try it with rotel in lieu of some or all of the creamed corn. But then I am a Texan and a spicy food addict. LOL! If you like the sweetness of the creamed corn and cornbread, you will probably LOVE this.
Edited to add: I took this to a party at work today and it was a pretty big hit. Like I said, if you like the sweetness of it, you'll love it! :-) I put picante sauce on mine. ;-)
We have made this twice already - once to ourselves [to try it out] and the second to serve to guests. Amazing! And the hubby loves it too. This is excellent and such a keeper! Thanks so much for the recipe.
