    Wow this is great! I feel like I've found a hidden treasure thats been tucked away here for years without review. DH had 3rds, kids had 2nds. That is huge! I made my cornbread from scratch and didn't use kidney beans, but black beans instead. Also, didn't have green pepper, but a yellow pepper, which was a nice sweetness. I would definitely make this again and again, although it made a giant batch even for my large family. A perfect potluck dish. Made and Reviewed for TexMex Photo Challenge. Thanks! :)
