Really filling, super delicious, the cornbread that soaks up the chili is like polenta and super tastey, while the golden brown cornbread top is also great. Can't wait to make this again. Best friend, girlfriend, and brother all enjoyed eating it.

A New Holiday Tradition

My mother and sister are fish-eating vegetarians, so about 4 years ago I made this recipe for Thanksgiving. We are all shrimp-lovers, and I have made this dish every Thanksgiving since. It is a holiday staple around our household. I add a large jalapeno to kick up the spice a little and serve it with sour cream. There is rarely anything left!!

filling, savory, meat-less
Straight out the overn, still simmering

I used Trader Joes Corn Bread Mix and added more shrimp. It was wonderful!
