This is a twist on the traditional cornbread dressing. If you like jalapenos, you will love this dressing! It's spicy without being hot. My family requests it every year, and they are hard to please!

I love this recipe. I do change one thing though, I use all stuffing and no breadcrumbs. I made it the first time with breadcrumbs and it was too heavy. The flavors are great and it goes really well with turkey. Read More

My family LOVES this dressing. I've made it at Thanksgiving the past three years. It's always a big hit and there are never any leftovers. I add low-fat Cream of Chicken soup. Read More

This was a good recipe. I used Mexican Chorizo instead of Italian Sausage for even more of a kick. I also did not drain the sausage after browning with the peppers and onions then omitted the additional butter on the top at the end. It was really a hit! Read More

This was quite tasty but required so much butter I was a little put off. I made as-is but did not dot with the butter before I put it in the oven. BIG MISTAKE! It needs everything called for.. except maybe a little bit more spice.:D Very good overall. Read More

This was good and a nice change. However with the pre-made corn bread stuffing mix it has a slight store bought taste. Also do not over process onions and jalapenos or their taste gets lost. Read More

Thanks this recipe is exactly what I was looking for. The only change I made was instead of using spicy Italian sausage I used sweet Italian sausage. This allowed for the younger ones to enjoy the dressing as well. I didn't want it too spicy. It gave it a wonderful sweet and spicy taste. This recipe helped make this Thanksgiving dinner one of the best. Read More

Tasty but quite salty. I would try it again using corn bread instead of cornbread stuffing mix. Loved the jalapenos the heat was just noticable and just right. Read More
