This is a tried and true recipe from my cousin in Memphis.


1 pkg of dry Ranch Dressing mix

1 cup sour cream

1 cup mayo

5 large tomatoes, seeded and chopped

1 jalapeno pepper, seeded & chopped (optional)

1/2 red or green bell pepper, diced

2 green onions, chopped, (or onion of your choice)

1 9x9 inch pan cornbread, cooked

2 (16 oz.) cans black beans or pinto beans (drained & rinsed)

1 1/4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

1 1/4 cups Monterey Jack cheese, grated

1 (10 oz.) pkg frozen corn, thawed (or 1 can whole kernel)

10 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled (optional)

Combine dressing mix, sour cream and mayo. Set aside. Combine tomatoes, jalapenos, pepper, onion, beans and corn and set aside. To assemble, crumble half the cornbread in bottom of large bowl. Layer half the tomato mixture, half the dressing, half the cheese. Repeat layers. Chill, covered, in fridge for 2-3 hours before serving. Serves 8. This is pretty when layered and served in a trifle bowl. Can be made a day ahead and will keep for several days in the fridge.
