  • Ready In

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Prepare the cornbread mix according to package directions, stirring green chilies, cumin, oregano and sage into the finished batter. Spread into a greased 8 inch square pan.
  2. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top springs back when lightly pressed. Set aside to cool completely.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, sour cream, and Ranch dressing mix. Set aside. Wrap bacon in paper towels, and cook in the microwave until crisp, about 45 seconds per slice. Crumble, and set aside.
  4. Crumble half of the cornbread into the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Pour half of the beans over the crumbled bread, half of the mayonnaise mixture, half of the corn, tomatoes, peppers, green onion, bacon and cheese. Repeat the layers ending with cheese on top. The dish will be very full. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours before serving.

I found that the amounts of cumin, oregano, and sage in the corn bread is so little you can't taste it through all the other ingredients. Tried doubling them, but still didn't notice, so I save...

fun, colorful, and delicious yet unique.

Fantastic! Instead of the regular ranch packet, I got the fiesta ranch for an extra kick, and I didn't have sage so I put in a little taco seasoning with it. I took it to a 4th of July BBQ and...
