i just found this recipe and intend to try it. note to anonymous; i don't think this is high in sodium compared to processed foods, but if you are concerned about it, use 'no salt added' diced tomatoes. dole has them as do (just as good) generic brands like spartan (much cheaper). that sould take care of the sodium concern.

I used shallots, cumin, turmeric, pepper in the chili mixture and ginger and diced green chilis in the cornbread mixture. I made a double batch to share at a potluck and it took an hour to fully cook. Was awesome. Raves and raves....
This was so good, the layers of chili, cheese and cornbread create a harmony of deliciousness! The cornbread topping is so good, especially with the added cilantro.
I use canned chili and a instant mix corn bread. Prepare in 10 minutes.. May not be as good as recipe, But for a fast meal, you can not beat it.
I want to try this, but the sodium is very high. The only thing I see that would cause that is the canned beans, but I thought rinsing them would wash away most of the salt they were packed in. I would consider making it with beans that I made myself from dry beans with lower salt content.
