Top Review by Queen Roachie

I am enjoying my third square of this right now! I LOVE the sour cream with taco seasoning combo. Next time I will use a larger pan, as the one I used was a bit small, so the crust was a bit thicker than I planned on. This has a fantastic combination of flavors. We used a fresh salsa so ended up having to drain it before putting that layer on. I didn't have corn, so had to leave it out, and we topped this with cilantro. Corn will be used next time, as I can imagine how good it would be... Thanks for sharing a great recipe! To the reviewer who used corn starch, I agree with jshaffer: corn starch is not a good sub for cornmeal at all. I think if you tried it with the coarser corn meal, you would enjoy this quite a bit more.
