    twissis's Note:

    Found in the most recent email I received from Grandparents.com, this unique recipe is by Miami-based celebrity chef *Douglas Rodriguez* who (at 43 yrs of age) has been hailed as the *Godfather of Nuevo Latino Cuisine* . He is also a cookbook author & owner of award-winning restaurants in Miami, Philadelphia, Scottsdale & Chicago. This recipe shares his fondness for the Thanksgiving holiday, his memories of his apron-clad grandmother cooking in their Miami kitchen & his Cuban heritage. (Times have been estimated. 20 min was allowed for ingredient prep & the overall times reflect only the time spent getting the stuffing ready for the turkey or the oven.) *Enjoy* !

      This was going to be an adventure for me just because I have never made stuffing or dressing with cornbread before. Everything was so unique in this recipe that I don't know where to start. I made this almost exactly as posted, except I chopped my vegetables finer than dice and had to use frozen corn kernels (no fresh around here this time of year). I then sprayed a casserole with non-stick cooking spray and baked it in the oven as directed, serving on the side of a lovely roast chicken. This stuffing does make a lot, but I was glad it did! We ate so much of it, and enjoyed every bite. The chorizo was a really nice touch, while the corn and the cornbread gave it a hint of sweetness. And to top it off, the dish is just so colorful! I will definitely be making this adventure again! Made for Best of 2012 Tag Game.

      Muy Bueno! This is delicious! I did cut this down to 4 servings, and wish I had made the full recipe. I think this would freeze quite well. I used turkey sausage in this and The Best Honey Cornbread. This is just a wonderful stuffing! I will be making this again! Served with a rotisserie chicken. Thanks twissis! Made for Every Day is a Holiday!

      This is a different kind of stuffing with the cornbread - not quite like regular stuffing, but quite good. I used a spicy soy Mexican chorizo for this (at half the quantity since it is really spicy) and just a tablespoon of oil to sauté the veggies. This recipe filled a lasagna pan to the top, and looked like a huge amount, but in the end if you are eating it for a meal it will feed about half the number as the side dish serving size.
