Tasty Thursday - Mexican Casserole

This week we've been exploring with different genres of food, including Chinese and Mexican. I have to admit, I'm not the biggest mexican food fan out there, but this recipe was actually pretty good! We used Jiffy corn bread mix, but I would suggest using something a little less sweet. The sweetness kind of counteracted with the spicy and, well, it could have been better.


  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 (16 oz.) bag of mixed taco cheese (or mild cheddar)
  • 1 can whole kernel corn
  • 1 pack taco seasoning
  • 1 medium jar of salsa
  • 1 pkg of corn bread mix..
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
Preheat the oven to 375 F. Brown hamburger meat in skillet. While meat is browning, mix corn bread package, egg, and milk until well blended. Once meat is brown, add corn (don't drain), salsa, and taco seasoning. Simmer for 3-5 minutes.

Spread half of the cornbread mix in the bottom of a greased 9x13 baking pan. Layer half of the cheese, then meat mix, then the other half of the cornbread mix, then the other half of the cheese. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until browned.
