  • 2 pans (8 to 9-inch size) cornbread, homemade or use cornbread mix
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 cup chopped green onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 4 ounces butter
  • turkey giblets, optional
  • 2 slices white bread
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 3 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 6 canned tamales, mashed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • dash ground cayenne pepper, or to taste


Crumble cooled cornbread into a large bowl; set aside. In a large skillet, sauté celery, onion, green pepper and garlic in butter until tender. Stir vegetable mixture into cornbread; set aside.

Put giblets in a saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, cover, and simmer until tender. Chop liver; add to cornbread mixture along with 1/4 cup of the stock. Reserve remaining giblets for gravy. If you don't use giblets, add about 1/4 cup more broth or bouillon to the dressing.

Soak bread in the chicken broth, then stir into cornbread mixture. Add remaining ingredients; mixed thoroughly. Spoon into a greased 2-quart casserole. Bake at 350° for 30 to 35 minutes.
