This is a wonderful recipe! I don't know how you could say it was bland when it's got 1 tb of chili powder in it. I thought it had lots of flavor. The only change I made was to use mexicorn instead of regular corn.

This recipe is really good. I will make it again and again. My whole family loved it. I was lazy and used corn bread mix instead of the corn bread recipe on instructions, but left the meat mixture like the recipe says, still turned out GOOD!!

I cook for a battered women's shelter and am always looking for casserole type recipes for the weekend meals. I came across this recipe and it looked really easy and simple. It smells amazing when it's cooking. The only thing that I did different than the original recipe was that I didn't add the water/stock to the recipe, to help keep it from being too mushy/soupy. It turned out perfect.
