Very yummy flavor. I added a box of prepared cornbread mix to the top in a full layer and it was wonderful.

Would have been better without the weird "corn bread" that goes on everything and is not like actual corn bread. More like corn meal coating that ruins it.

Very tasty & easy to prepare, although I did think the chili needed additional spices. Perhaps I made a mistake on the topping because it seemed to be a little dry. Will definitely make again with some small changes.

Yumo! Followed recipe except I baked in oven. Topped it with cheese, sour cream and jalepeno.

I have not tried it yet, but looks awsome, I never adjust a recipe till I make it once.
