"We had this for supper tonight along with a chopped salad. We thought it was delicious. We liked that there was more “filling” than cornbread.

After reading the reviews, I decided to use a corn bread mix. I chose Hodgson Mill Whole Grain Corn Meal & Wheat Flour Cornbread Mix.
I didn't have an 11x7 pan so I used my Corning 8x8 deep dish casserole. It worked find, but I had to bake it for 24 minutes. It's a keeper!"

"easy, peasy recipe. I use frozen, precooked ground turkey (I buy 3 lbs at a time & cook on weekends, freeze, ready to use). I also add a can of hominy, undrained. Once bean/meat mixture comes to boil, I add 1 tsp cornstarch to thicken. I, too, use Marie Callendar's corn bread mix. Great for cold days!"

"Taste was very good. I suggest draining the tomatoes before adding to meat mixture."

"This recipe was eatable but no big wow factor. Won't be making this again!"

"I love this recipe. I take a few shortcuts: chunky salsa instead of canned tomatoes; a favorite pepper spice mix (doubled) instead of just chili; and Marie Callendar's cornbread mix instead of homemade. My fiance likes it so much he immediately boxes up the leftovers to take with him to work the next day."

"Delicious. I used fire roasted tomatoes and added thawed bell pepper and onions (a mix purchased frozen from store) into the Jiffy cornmeal mix. A Keeper!"

"The topping is the key. The filling needs some zing for the ones that like spicy. Two kinds of peppers, celery, Chile beans. garlic, ketchup, little brown sugar, bit of brown mustard, if there's a little to much liquid dust with corn starch to thicken. Double the topping, cook filling in a dutch oven, spread the doubled topping over the hot filling and bake as directed about 13-14 min. You have your self a southern Tex Mex dish, browned around the edges crisp topping,,,,I will make again"

"quick and easy! My husband loved this casserole. It was last minute and I didn't have all the ingredients. I used Bush's chili Beans instead of Ranch Style Beans and omitted the chili powder. I also used Jiffy Corn Muffin mix for the topping. Next time I will sprinkle on shredded cheese before adding the topping."
