There are a lot of versions of this recipe going around.
I tried one on Pinterest and then tweaked it to our liking.
We like it a lot and I've made it several times already.
If you've never tried cornbread salad, you really should,
especially if you like Mexican food!
Betsy's Cornbread Salad
One box of Jiffy Cornbread mix.
Mix up batter according to directions on the box
and then add 1 t each of
chili powder, oregano, and cumin.
Add 1 T sugar and 1 small can of chopped green chiles.
Bake in a greased 9x9 pan at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
Cool completely before cutting into 1" squares.
1/2 c ranch dressing
1/2 c sour cream
1 T sugar
1 t lime juice
Whisk and chill until ready to use.
(sometimes I just use bottled chipotle ranch dressing)
To assemble the salad, layer ingredients below
in a large bowl.
1 can black beans (rinsed and drained)
1 can corn (drained)
1 diced tomato
1/2 diced green pepper
1 small diced cucumber
the dressing ~ place dollops randomly
1/2 c chopped cilantro
1 c shredded cheese
Use half of each ingredient so you can repeat and have
2 layers of each. For instance, use half the cornbread,
half can of black beans, etc.
Do not stir. Chill until ready to serve.
