the corn deal

a recipe by
Sharon Thompson

This easy side dish is easy and delish. The first request I hear from co-workers when we are having a pot luck. It seems they think I spend hours on this dish and I just smile to myself and always make 2 seperate pans--1 very spicy, 1 with just a small kick. Also good as a dip with tostita chips.
