    EASY and EXCELLENT

    Trisha Wilson from Rockport, TX

    This bread is PERFECT for serving with beans; put it in a bowl and top it with your favorite beans. We've used brown (pinto) beans, but we preferred using Butter Beans (lima beans). What a TREAT !

    I've never been able to make any type of cornbread, even out of a mix, w/out it being too dry. This was incredibly easy to make, and turned out moist and delicious, the whole family loved it, especially served w/ salsa on top. Thanks.

    Excellent!!

    Jeri Haley from Tenino, WA

    I made this Spoon Bread and it was delicious. We love Mexican tasting dishes and this was a hit. The only thing is we are not too wild about cilantro, so I just omitted it. But it was excellent served with homemade salsa. An A+++ recipe. I served it with chili. Excellent!! Thanks for a wonderful idea. Will be making this spoon bread for many occasions. Thanks again.

    Easier than you think!

    Jan Rakinic from Springfield, IL

    This recipe is easier than it's cracked up to be. You can dial up (or down) the heat by adjusting the amount of green chilies, or substituting small amounts of dried habanero.
