Layered Cornbread Salad:

1 (8.5-oz) pkg cornbread muffin mix
1 cup mayonnaise
1 (8-oz) carton sour cream
1 (1-oz) pkg dry ranch salad dressing mix
1 (8-oz) block Cheddar cheese, shredded and
2 (15-oz) cans pinto beans, rinsed and drained
2 (15.25-oz) cans corn, drained
3 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
4 plum tomatoes, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped

    Bake cornbread muffins according to
package directions; let cool and crumble into 1
inch pieces. Stir together mayonnaise, sour
cream, and dressing mix in a small bowl; set
aside . Layer cornbread, half of cheese, half of
dressing, beans, corn, chicken, tomatoes, and
bell pepper in individual plastic cups with lids.
Spread with remaining dressing and seal lids on
cups. Refrigerate overnight before serving.
Note: Toasting the cornbread at 400°F on a
rimmed baking sheet for about 10 minutes will
help keep the cornbread crunchier. This salad
can also be layered in a large serving bowl or
plastic container for easy transport.
