My nephew and I made this for dinner. I forgot to take the recipe with me to the store, and mistakenly bought rotel diced tomatoes instead of tomato sauce. I used the tomatoes, but left out the water. And as a personal preference, I left out the green pepper. I used jiffy corn meal mix. It was good, but had a sweet taste, I think due to the jiffy mix. I will make this again, but maybe try a different corn meal mix. Thank you for sharing yourrecipe. Mindi
