It taste better if you fix it the night before and refrigerate it overnight.

    I'm going to try this, too. My husband is allergic to green peppers but I will use grated carrot in place of it. Also thinking of using pimento or black olives, or both. This is a nice recipe.

    You know Jan, I don't know. I just have always been able to go to the local supermarket in the isle where the muffin mixes and stuff are, and grab a package of Tex Mex cornbread, or 'Martha White' Mexican Cornbread mix. I would think that just regular cornbread mix (or cornbread from scratch) would work just as well.
