I've been making this dish for about 25 years, and I don't remember where I got the recipe. It is easy and very good. I sometimes add sliced black olives and frozen corn works just as well as canned.

Quick to make and tasty! Tastes better the next day. TIP: Don't forget to get milk and eggs for the cornbread - otherwise, two trips to the store.

Very quick and easy. I added a can of Rotel to it to spice it up a bit more. Even my husband liked it, and he's not too fond of dishes with cornbread toppings.

Nice throw together dinner. I did have to sub a couple of ingredients. I used a can of diced tomatoes (pureed)for the tomato sauce and I had to use up a red pepper. :)
