    I wouldn't rate this awesome because I used Stevia in place of splenda. (YUCK) but maybe if I would have done it the other way it would have been better. Even so the meat mixture was too bland. It was edible though, but I think I will try another recipe. - 5/5/13

    Very Good
    Too much sodium!! If you don't want it be too spicy, don't use as much chili powder. I will have to be careful with this dish b/c it is too salty. Also, try to double the cornbread recipe so that you can put more on top of the meat mixture. With all of that said, my mom & I really liked this dish! - 6/17/08
