Angie's Story

I discovered this at an office potluck, it is wonderful! Great for potlucks, get together s, etc. Serves a lot of people.
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.
