Recipe Tips

This recipe has a moderate spice level. If you like spicier food, consider using medium or hot salsa and one of the hot and spicy flavors of black beans (do not drain). For even more spice intensity, stir 1 to 2 tablespoons of chopped red or green jalapeño chile peppers into cornbread mixture.

This went over great! I mixed the cornbread from scratch and made enough of it to cover the whole 9x13" pan, and topped it with sour cream right out of oven. I served this with nachos and a salad, and it fed five adult men with no leftovers.

So good and so easy - a nice change from a heavy weekend meal. Just add a green salad and you have a great meal and lots of compliments.

This is easy to make even for me, and I'm a terrible cook! We love this dish - tastes great and even my toddler will eat it. It's a great way to work more beans into your diet.
