the liquid in every store bought salsa is very different. you should drain your salsa a bit. the "corn bread /jiffy crust" is better made with real corn meal and the other ing. the crust was mushy and the liquid from all other ing. was not cooked. I cooked it over time. this is a really poor example of how to cook simple and healthy. So many things from a can drives the sodium level up 10 fold! on the other hand it could be really nice with better ing. Be aware of the liquid in all items even if you drain them ( I drained for two hours and let everything come to room temp) still far tooooooooo much liquid. MAKE your own corn topping
We loved this recipe. I have tried other recipes similar in concept, but this one is by far the best. As it is plenty for my family for at least two nights, I divided the meat filling into two 8x8 pans and then topped with 1/2 recipe of cornbread just prior to baking each. Fresh cornbread is so much better than leftover! Excellent!
Great Mexican dish. I made half a recipe and we still have 2 servings left. Loved it.
We loved this! I used a 9x13 and the cornbread topping was the perfect amount spread over that surface area. This was the first time I was daring enough to try a jalapeno in anything (I've been increasing my heat tolerance slowly) and the heat level was fine for me with all of the Tabasco and chili powder as well. I used only Monterey Jack in the cornbread and couldn't taste it at all, maybe next time I will increase the cheese or do 1/2 that and 1/2 cheddar. Thanks for sharing!
This is okay-- too much cornbread topping for us, though.
This is an OMG recipe! It deserves more than 5 stars! The taste of the meat mixture in so rich and good. I left out the jalapeno peppers as I am a wimp with hot stuff, but other than that I kept the seasonings as is. I used cut up pork from some center cut pork chops I needed to use up and that was great. This is a great recipe for a family get together, but my husband and I loved it and are looking forward to leftovers. Thanks, Carole in Orlando
