Tex-Mex Corn Squares

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Lambkyns

A great vegetarian recipe from Homemakers' Magazine. A bean, corn and salsa mixture on a polentalike base. The chipotles (smoked jalapeno peppers) can be quite hot! I often just add a dab of the peppers when cooking for folks who are not keen on spicy food. Love the smokey flavour. EDITED:Feb.08...We really enjoy this served with puppitypup's "Mexican Night Salad" (#188160)

I love this! I made mine in a muffin tin and it filled 12 cups perfectly! I didn't use the coriander as I didn't have any. I do use both chipotles though! Wowee! Talk about excellent! Thanks so much for posting!
