Queso Cornbread

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by cj2 Johnson

I cannot remember where this came from, but it has always been a favorite. A little difficult and it makes a large amount. But that makes it perfect for pot-lucks or family gatherings. It is a meal all by its self. Very much worth the time.

This is a keeper!! It is an easy recipe to "tweek". I added a small can of drained, sliced black olives to the sausage/tomato/cheese/bean mixture. After baking, top each serving with sour cream and sliced green onion. A simple addition which helps the presentation.

  1. Pre heat oven to 375.
  2. Mix cornbread according to package directions in a LARGE BOWL and set aside.
  3. Prepare 2 9x13 pans with cooking spray or grease and flour.
  4. I have used a roasting pan instead of 2 9X13's you be the judge.
  5. Now brown crumbled sausage in a large skillet.
  6. Drain fat.
  7. Add velveeta, ro-tel tomatoes and pinto beans.
  8. Stir often until all of the cheese is melted.
  9. Add hot cheese mixture to cornbread batter.
  10. It will swell up quite a bit.
  11. That is why you need a LARGE bowl.
