"I haven't tried it yet, but it gIves me a great idea about how to do the cornbread topping. I use the chili made from the packet. Warning. The original is spicey"

"The recipe called for chili beans with tomatoes, or no tomatoes... So I subbed tomato sauce... Good recipe, could use a little updating. Just substitute where you can."
