I remember a similar casserole from my childhood. It was a family favorite. I make it today, sometimes using a jar of salsa instead of tomato soup to reduce sodium and to spice it up. When I make it with salsa, I add some jalapenos. Health note If you use tomato soup, get the low sodium variety or omit ALL salt...canned soup is notoriously full of salt, check the label. I sometimes add finely chopped red or green cayenne peppers or dried flakes to the cornbread batter. I use a whole box of Jiffy cornbread mix, or a half recipe of homemade batter.
