  1. I am a BIG texture person and was so surprised no one had mentioned the texture of this dish in their review. It was, to me, gooey - much like a tamale. Nothing like real cornbread. It not overly exciting of a dish and the kids didn't eat it. As far as bland goes, my hot sauce took care of that.
  2. Great recipe very simple to make and tasty, I used Fire and Brimstone chilli powder to give it a kick and it was hot. The cornbread worked well with self-raising flour. Overall I found it simple and tasty.
  3. This wasnt bad but it was kinda bland. I did enjoy the cornbread. The beans need some work if i make it again...which is unlikely.
  4. Fantastic! I did spice up the beans more because we are immune to normal amounts of chili powder in my family, but was otherwise perfect as written! I was initially put off because of all the ingredients listed (stupid, I know), but it took about 5 minutes to put it all together. Next time I make this I will decrease the cornbread by about half, because there was just waaay too much. But unlike another reviewer, the cornbread cooked just fine for me. I'll be making this again very soon! Thanks for the great recipe!
  5. My 11 year old daughter and I loved this. I made it on the stove as I left it too late to put in the crockpot. The only change I would make is that next time if I were using the stove top would be to add a little more liquid to the bean mixture ( but that was my fault for not realizing it needed more liquid on the stove). Overall this was very easy to make. Thanks for the recipe.
