A few days ago my beloved baked a pan of savory cornbread (garlic and italian seasoning instead of sugar). I prefer mine slathered in maple syrup and he prefers his not left-over, so most of it has been languishing on the counter getting stale for a couple days.
This morning I was struck with an impulse to save it; first I was thinking I might make some type of stuffing, but then I noticed a can of green chiles and inspiration almost struck.
How can I give this cornbread a new life with some TexMex or Latin American flavor? I have green chilies, jalapenos, banana peppers, red and green salsas, plenty of hot sauce, a variety of rice, beans and veggies, plus some assorted dairy products. Vegetarian ideas preferred. :)
