Are you in the mood for a Mexican casserole? You put everything into one dish, pop it in the oven and all you need to add is a salad.
Doesn’t that sound good to you? What I like about this recipe is the nice layer of corn bread on top. It really makes the dish.
This would be a super casserole to bring to a pot-luck. Serves 6 for a main dish. If you are bringing this to a party for appetizers, cut into bite-size pieces and you would have 25 to 28 servings.
So let’s fire of the stove and get cooking…
Mexican Casserole Recipe
- 1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
- 3 Tbsp. my taco seasoning
- 1 can whole kernel corn, drained
- 1 can tomato sauce
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup chopped bell pepper, any color
- 1 onion finely chopped
- 1 or 2 cloves garlic minced
- 3 Tbsp. olive oil
- 1 cornbread recipe
- 1 cup shredded mild cheddar cheese
Brown the beef in a frying pan, drain the grease.
Add the taco seasoning, tomato sauce, corn and the water and mix well. Simmer.
In another frying pan, saute the onion in the olive oil for 20 minutes or until onion is a nice golden brown. Add the minced garlic and saute for 3 minutes more.
Add onion, garlic mixture to the meat and simmer.
Now prepare the cornbread recipe. When you are done mixing the cornbread batter place the meat mixture in a 9 x 13 baking dish and pour the cornbread batter over the top of the meat and spread it out evenly.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. and bake uncovered for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the cheese over the top of the cornbread and bake an additional 4 or 5 minutes or until the cheese melts.
Serve this casserole with a nice green salad and some salsa and you’ve got a complete, delicious, and easy meal.
Here Is A Great Tip For School Lunches:
When my son was 12 years old, he liked this recipe so much he took left-overs to school for lunch. I packed it in a microwave-safe container and he would reheat it in the school microwave.
So if your kids get tired of having a sandwich everyday, give this casserole a try.
