    Debbwl's Note:

    These mild flavored peppers have a filling that is sweet and somewhat reminiscent of the sweet tamales we get during the holidays. Cook and prep time do Not include time need to make the corn bread as I quite often make it either the night before. If in a time crunch you could always buy a pre-made 9x9 corn bread.

      What a nice change for stuffed peppers. The flavor is mild but good. Not sure that I cared for the raisins in this though so I would probably omit it next time. I used 2Bleu's recipe for Jiffy Mix Cornbread Made Even Better #454971. This made a tasty meal served with some Mexican rice on the side. Thank you for sharing.

      Love the idea of using a Mexican style bread stuffing for peppers. I made a healthy cornbread with wholewheat flour and no added fat. The recipe is as promised, mildly flavored, and I found that I needed to add some Mexican seasoning to boost it a bit but I only used 1 tsp of it. The filling would be marvelous as stuffing for a Santa Fe seasoned chicken. Made the cornbread earlier in the day so assembling dinner really didn't take long at all. The last time I bought peppers I got multicolored ones so thats what I used and they ended up looking rather Christmasy! Thanks for this one Deb :D
