Top Review by Jane Gilley

I made this for a family couples gathering. It was well received and no one knew it was WW friendly. It was not spicy enough for me or my hubby...but the 'gringos' in the crowd liked it just fine. I would add some cheese and a bit more spice next time....but it was tasty and I would make it agian.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • For Topping

  • 8 ounces cornbread mix, i.e. Betty Crocker
  • 14 cup liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters)
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
  • For Pie

  • 12 ounces frozen soy crumbles (like Morningstar Farms Meal Starters Grillers Recipe Crumbles or Boca Meatless Ground Burger**)
  • 12 cup sweet corn, canned, drained

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
