Slow Cooking Thursday - or not!

Today is supposed to be Slow Cooking Thursday. However - Sandra is on her way home from vacation and is unable to host. So instead of doing a slow cooking recipe, I decided to share a regular recipe.
This is a recipe for an unusual salad. I got it from a friend at work and made it when we had our Bible study group over. It is really good! I actually have it posted now on my recipe blog, but I know a lot of you wouldn't see it there, so I'm sharing it here. Give it a try - you'll like it!

Chili Corn Bread Salad
1 pkg (8.5 oz) corn bread/muffin mix
1 egg
1/3 cup milk
1 can (4 oz) chopped green chilies
1/8 tsp ground cumin
1/8 tsp ground oregano
Mix all of above and bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Cool.

1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream
1 envelope ranch salad dressing
Mix to make dressing.

1 can (15 oz) pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can (15 oz) corn, drained
3 medium tomatoes, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1/2 cup green onion, chopped
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

In a 9x13 glass pan or a large glass bowl, crumble half of the corn bread. Spread half of the dressing over bread. Layer with half the beans, corn, tomatoes, pepper, onion, cilantro and cheese. Repeat layer. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
