Reviews forChili Cornbread Salad
"This is the best cornbread salad I've tried yet. To make it a little more spicy I used half cheddar and half grated pepper jack. Also waited to serve it to crumble crisp bacon on top so it wouldn't get soggy. We just loved it!!"
"Loved by all I shared it with, great to bring to picnics and parties."
"This was one of our new favorite dishes. I made it exactly as instructed and it was delicious. Next time I might make a little extra of the sour cream mixture or have a jar of salsa along side. It was just a little dry but the cornbread really made this dish special."
"Did not use the bacon in order to make it vegetarian. Received rave reviews. A good option for potlucks."
"Excellent!!! Followed the recipe exactly, would not change a thing. The whole family loved it, will be making again and again."
"This sounds like something my family would like. I will try this when I get home."
"I made for a church potluck and got many recipe requests. This is delicious."
"This recipe is great but I cut it in half for our use. It still made two 8 x8 pans. I mix everything together. Did not like the layering as all the flavors don't get mixed together. I also just used ranch dressing from the bottle rather than the packet and the sour cream and mayo. It was a hit, everyone loved it and no leftovers."
"This is very, very good. I'm only feeding a family of four so I used just 1 can of pinto beans and 1 can of shoepeg corn. Also, I cut down the green pepper and green onion to 1/4 cup each and sauteed them together for a couple of minutes. One family member won't eat mayo so I subbed plain greek yogurt and it tasted great. This dish tastes even better after being refrigerated for 24 hrs."
"This recipe just caught my attention and I had to try it. Thanks for sharing, will be a family recipe for sure!"
