Definitely will be making this again. Made a few minor changes after reading the other comments and it was a big hit here. Instead of all corn, I used half corn and half black beans (and used the leftover beans and corn from the cans to make a salsa for the next day). Added a tsp of chipotles minced to the cornmeal mixture and beat it in with the cream cheese and also added some cumin and cilantro. At the table we topped it with fire roasted salsa we got at Sprouts and some sour cream. It was delicious.
This was wonderful! Everyone, including my 4 and 2 year olds, loved this dish. It had enough spice to be interesting but not overwhelming for the little ones.
Ok, first off I used beef chorizo and it crumbled as I sliced it, ended up more of a ground beef product (I have never used/eaten Chorizo before). So at this point I was irritated, and running late, so I just did my own thing, scrapped the eggs, sugar and cornmeal. Heated it all up in the microwave, added a handful of chopped cilantro, and threw it in the crockpot and ran out the door. But it was a HIT! Thanks
This one is a keeper. I have made this twice. My picky family really likes it. The first time, I substituted cornbread mix instead of cornmeal, red onions, italian seasoning instead of oregano, and added a tiny bit of cream. It turned out good. The second time, I made no substitutions but I think I baked it a little too long, and it turned out a little dry. Overall, my family says, "Yummy!"
Excellent recipe! I served it for dinner with cole slaw. I did not have jalapeno peppers so chopped up some bell peppers and used frozen corn. This has a great taste and topped with some salsa it was a winner. This is a "doer again"! Thanks, Carole in Orlando
I used ground chorizo, and after draining it twice, the casserole came out rather dry. I tried to do a good thing, but it skewed the final product. Next time I'll use link chorizo next time.
Good baked dish! I used a full pound of sausage, and subbed black beans, cumin, and chipoltes, for more of a true mexican taste! It was good, only next time I will add more chipoltes, as my husband and I love the hot and smokey taste of the chipoltes with the sausage!!
this is total comfort food. i followed the ingredients , but used a full pound of chorizo which made 2 perfect layers. i served it with hot sauce on the side.
Yum! What a delicious treat and not too difficult for a beginner cook. Makes a crisp and bubbly cheese crust on top. We had trouble slicing the chorizo thinly enough to get a good distribution throughout (and on top of) the dish - next time we might remove the casings and use the sausage meat in the ground beef style.
