    KristenErinM's Note:

    this is spectacular. i have made it twice for 2 different groups of people and everyone has loved it. each serving(not including any additional toppings) is less than 100 calories. the polenta can be made ahead and refrigerated to save time.

      Sorry, I wasn't a fan. Reading everyone's suggestions I added meat to mine. The meat mixture was good but the cornbread it's self was not. I think it would be very good it you made the cornbread by the directions then added the mixture on top. This just didn't do it for me.

      I really liked the flavor of this dish and it was especially good with all the toppings. BF on the other hand said he would like it better if it had hamburger in it too. Of course he's a carnivore! I used pinto instead of black beans, just personal preference and added seasoning to the beans as well. Very easy and filling dish. Thanks for posting.

      This was very good. I doubled the recipe and used a spring-form cake pan. Mine needed to cool for about a half hour to set up. Next time I'll add some fresh corn kernels to the polenta for some added texture. Thanks!
