    I tried this recipe for my coworkers. Sadly, they found their way to the trash can. The combination of hot sauce, jalape?os and the cornbread was not at all what was expected. Definitely not a keeper.

    I made these and served them at our church function and they were a big hit. I made one with the crushed corn chip coating and one without the coating. The one without the coating was by far the favorite. I had several requests for the recipe. I will definitely make these again. They are delicious and different.
