When I make this recipe I use cracked corn instead of cornmeal. It takes a little bit to cook, but it is well worth the time. It is delicious, extremely reach and you can also serve it during a dinner party. My guests always love it.
Preheat oven to 350°F Boil 4 cups water. Dissolve cornmeal in 1 ½ cup cold water (if using cracked corn, skip this step and add it to total amount of water). Add cornmeal mixture to boiling water, stirring constantly. When it begins to thicken simmer for approximately 30 minutes, stirring often.
Add butter, sour cream, cheese and spices, mixing very well, but slowly. Pour into uttered 8 x 8” casserole.
