"this was really good, though I halved it and only added a small amount of the green chili's. very tasty"
"I also cut this recipe in half, and it was good, but I also agree that it was a little dry."
"Very tasty. I made half the recipe and there was plenty for 6. With the meat mixture covering the cornbread, it was hard to tell when it was cooked through. I only cooked the 1/2 recipe for about 35 minutes in a convection oven."
"I halved this recipe and actually forgot to put the second layer of cornbread in, and it was still good. I used spiral Fritos and the ones on top burned, may just add after taking the casserole of out of over, or will try to cover. Will make again with a few adjustments."
"My family felt that the casserole was dry; I used 1/4 less cornbread but it was still dry - not so much that we didn't eat it but I don't think I'll keep it in my "recipe box" to make again as there are so many other delicious recipes to make and eat!"
