Reviews for Flavorful Mexican Corn Bread
"Husband loved it, I thought it was okay. I think I prefer corn bread without pepper & onions, but husband devoured it.~ Theresa"
"Since I prefer a less crumbly cornbread, I found this recipe to be excellent. It was savory like a Southern cornbread and sweeter like a Northern cornbread. As I have a dairy allergy, I substituted Almond Breeze and 2 T lemon juice for the buttermilk and left out the cheese altogether (I have yet to find a cheese substitute that I think tastes good). Also, as I prefer a finer ground cornmeal, I used a fine ground masa harina rather than regular cornmeal. As none of these changes should affect the texture of the finished product I think mine was close enough to the original to say it was an excellent recipe. I will make this again."
"Did not like it. Too moist. Tastes like a sweet western omelet instead of corn bread."
