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

Yum! I also used honey-ish corn bread mix (Krusteaz low fat), but I actually like the undertone of sweetness to this dish. I will definitely be making this again.

Yum! This was delicious and tasted really familiar - I didn't realize until I bit into it that my mother used to make this recipe! This is a definite keeper. I left out the corn and peppers, but otherwise followed the recipe...and will be doubling it next time!
