DELISH!!! I used Enchilada Sauce for the enchilada sauce and Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix Copycat for the corn muffin mix. I also added about a cup of canned black beans to the chicken and mixed them with the enchilada sauce instead of just spreading it on top of the baked corn bread mixture. A definite keeper.

My suggestions, based on other reviews: -I used 1 egg instead of the substitute -Cook the cornbread mix until it starts to get golden brown on the top (longer than 15 minutes) -Next time, I'll use a rotisserie chicken (even better if they have a southwest flavored one) for ease and for better chicken flavor. It was REALLY tasty - my husband and I ate most of the casserole dish that night and all that was left was only enough for lunch the next day! I liked it with plenty of Cholula on top.

This was simple & yummy. Used regular canned corn instead of creamed, and it worked out fine. Thanks!
