kinda like a bland chili with a dry cornbread. I knew it was bad when my wife, who likes vegetarian meals, said it needs meat.

My family and I thought it was rather bland. The cornbread was also dry. Added salt and definitely used the salsa for added taste.

My husband and I enjoyed it. I did however make small changes like used diced tomatoes with green chilies, used a red pepper instead of a green one and added 1/2 tsp of crushed red pepper to the bean mixture. Also did not have whole wheat flour so used white.

This was okay -- It seemed to have more cornbread than beans, so to me it was more like a bread. Next time, I will back off on the dough part
