The Thanksgiving countdown has begun!  The key to a stress free Thanksgiving is planning and prepping.  Throwing a in little prayer never hurts either!  I make a lot of my dishes the day before to cut down on the time in the kitchen. Thanksgiving  is a day to give thanks, spend time with your loved ones and enjoy great food.  Today I put a Latin spin on the ordinary cornbread dressing.  This cornbread dressing can be made one day ahead and baked when needed.  Happy Thanksgiving from New Latina!  May you have a wonderful day filled with blessings, familia and tasty eats!

Chorizo, cumin and oregano give this cornbread dressing a hearty lift, while the cilantro and apple add a sweet perk.  Make your favorite cornbread recipe or feel free to use a quality cornbread from your local bakery.
