The dish was good, but it was lacking something. I used canned green chiles instead of a jalapeno because it's what I had in my cabinet. Next time I will cook the tempeh alone first to allow it to brown. Also, it was a bit bland, so I'm going to add some cayenne to the cornbread mixture. We added hot sauce to the final product too.
