It's not your grandma's stuffing! It's awesome. It's a staple on our Thanksgiving table. I was sick of the soggy bird stuffing and this is fresh, different and complements the meal perfectly. We still have the boring old-fashioned stuffing too, but this always goes first!

With a little bit of Mexican flare, this cornbread dressing is a nice twist on a holiday favorite. The combination of cilantro, fresh herbs, and fresh vegetables really make this special and full of flavor. This stuffing isn't only beautiful when presented, it tastes amazing!!

NOTE: I baked three (3) 8.5 oz boxes of cornbread and it was the perfect amount for this recipe.  Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
