      This is fantastic. I wasn't sure about it at first, but I'm glad I gave it a try. The only thing I did differently was to leave out the cilantro b/c I didn't have any on hand. Great textures and a great recipe!

      I'm not going to star this recipe only because I used it more as an inspiration than a step by step I made these cakes for brekkie but I made a cornbread from scratch because I really dislike any sweetening in cornbread. I just added a bit more milk to make it more pancake like and they griddled up very nicely. I topped them with a thin slice of ham, an egg, fat free cheddar and salsa. It made a delicious breakfast with a mug of Mexican Coffee. I do plan to use this as written for ZWT. *EDIT*, I made this again today as written and it's really lovely. I used canned chicken from Costco to cut down on cooking and it was moist and very flavorful. 5 stars from me.

      This was tasty. My husband liked it too! I didn't have any salsa so I sub'd green pepper, diced tomato and added chili powder, cumin, and cayenne pepper. It tasted a lot like the salsa we usually have. Will make this again.
