Chili Corn Bread Salad

Cassie *


This is a delicious salad for anytime of the year. I make mine in trifle's so pretty with the layers of color, and mighty tasty..

I figure with summer around the corner this would be a great time to share another great salad recipe.


Recipe from my Taste of Home - August/September 1999 issue.

How to Make Chili Corn Bread Salad


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degree F.

    Prepare corn bread batter according to package directions. Stir in chilies, cumin, oregano and sage. Spread in a greased 8-in. square baking pan.

    Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool.
  2. In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, sour cream and dressing mix; set aside

    Crumble half of the corn bread into a 13-in. x 9-in. dish. ( I use a trifle bowl, it will be full ).

    Layer with half of the beans, mayonnaise mixture, corn, tomatoes, green pepper,olives, onions, bacon and cheese. Repeat layers (dish will be very full). Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  3. This is a very well received salad...guests will love it.
