Does the Chi chi's prep cook know the recipe for the El grande Burro and sauce?

I was a prep cook for 5 years at Chi Chi's. Never used an egg making sweet corn cake. Also, used big cans of cream corn. Couldn't tell you the ratio of corn meal and stuff because it was all prepackaged. Just dumped in the package, cream corn, margarine, water, and sugar.

I find it hard to believe that this is the Chi Chi recipe for corn cake. I feel it was a dense bread type receipt. What happened, was something left out of the original recipe.

After preparing this recipe, I too, will add corn to the it. I was looking for Don Pablo's Sweet Corn Cake recipe. This is good.

I'm not sure why this rates a "3" difficulty rating. It's a simple cornbread recipe with the addition of sour cream. Pretty good, moist and slightly tangy because of the sour cream but I was hoping for something with a more intense corn flavor, like the Don Pablos corn cake. Maybe next time I'll add some frozen corn to the batter.
[CDKitchen Note: A Difficulty rating of "3" means it can be prepared by any average cook without special equipment or ingredients. It would be a "2" if it required less measuring of ingredients (or a "1" if it didn't require an oven)]
