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!
EXCELLENT!! I cut the recipe in half and it still made around 6 servings. It is very filling. I used tortilla chips instead of corn chips b.c. my family doesn't like corn chips. Great flavor, next time I think I will add refried beans on the very bottom for even for flavor. Yes I would freeze it BUT do not freeze it with the top layer of cheese and chips. Do that when you are baking it to reheat it out of the freezer.
I love this casserole! Would it be a good one for a freezer meal?
