This recipe was fun and it looks yummy in a glass or clear plastic serving dish. There are so many things you can do to personalize this and make it your own. I started w adding a lot more seasoning to my cornbread recipe (paprika, celery seed, savory, cumin, garlic and roasted garlic, red pepper flakes). I used 1 can Northern white beans and 1 can Caribbean Recipe Black beans (yum!). I forgot to layer cheese in the middle, so put it all on top and that was just fine.
Very flavorful and the diced tomatoes stay firm and fresh; nice surprise! The one thing that bothered me was how much MAYO and SOUR CREAM we were eating in every bite... so, I would stick to the recipe for potlucks, but serving my family, I plan on adding cottage cheese to the recipe and decreasing the amt of mayo and s.cream. I will also use the crumbled bacon in the bag (from costco) just because there is so much more meat and less fat in Costco's-- meaning a healthier end recipe.
I thought it might also be fun to add spicy Jimmy Dean sausage (in place of the bacon), olives, chopped fresh broccoli into the layers-- serving it up w a wedge of lettuce and some hot peppers on the side.
I used the stated size of canned chili's and it was fine. Once the cornbread is cooked, the flavor of the chili's is extremely mild. I will add MORE to mine next time. HA!
Ohhhhhhhh the options! Fun!
