1 batch cornbread, cut into 2 1/2cm cubes, recipe follows
1 (415g) tin red kidney beans, rinsed, drained
1 (430g) tin corn kernels, drained
1 medium Vidalia onion, finely chopped
1 large green pepper, finely chopped
3 large tomatoes, chopped
2 cups grated sharp Cheddar cheese
1 (250ml) bottle ranch dressing
Chopped fresh parsley leaves, for garnish

For the cornbread

8 tbsps vegetable oil, plus 4 tbsps for greasing tin
1 cup self-raising cornmeal
3/4 cup self-raising flour
1 cup creamed corn
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 cup grated sharp Cheddar cheese (optional)
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
1) In the bottom of a large glass bowl, place the cornbread cubes. Layer the beans, sweetcorn, onion, green pepper, tomatoes and cheese on top of the cornbread.

2) Spread the ranch dressing evenly over the cheese. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Garnish with fresh parsley, if desired.

1) Preheat the oven to 190C/Gas 5. Generously coat a cast iron frying pan with up to 4 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Preheat the pan either in the oven or on the hob over a medium-high heat.

2) Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl, stirring with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula until combined.

3) Pour the batter into the preheated cast iron pan. Place the pan in the oven and bake until golden brown, approximately 30 minutes. If making individual cornbreads in smaller pans, they will require a shorter cooking time.
