I would make this but I would put it in the oven. Go ahead heat the beans ect then pour cornbread over hot mixture, Bake for 45 min at 400 or until you are sure it's done.
I just looked in my crockpot after 2 1/2 hours and the cornbread is not close to being done. I had to take it out because the beans are now burning the bottom of my cooker. I'm putting it in the oven and hoping for the best. It just may be a pizza night though. Just wish I read these reviews before and not after trying to make it.
This was just okay. I liked the flavor but as someone else said, there is way too much cornbread. I agree the cornbread needs to be halved and maybe even double the bean mixture!! After I put the cornbread on top it only took about 90 minutes to cook, but I think my crockpot cooks a little hot. I'm not sure if I'll make it again.
So far it's been 3 hours since I added the corn bread topping and most of corn bread is still raw. Followed directions exactly and I have a new slow cooker. I would not make this again.
This recipe is very filling!
