Taco Corn Bread Casserole

The other day when visiting Debbi’s blog, she had posted this recipe and I knew I would be trying it soon.  I love corn bread and Mexican food also but combining the two ~ heavenly!

So, this was dinner last night and it was delicious!  Bill and I both fell for it and I will definitely be making it again.  Debbi made it with ground turkey.  I am not much of a fan of turkey, except at Thanksgiving time; therefore, I cooked this great recipe up with lean ground beef.  Then before serving, I dusted it with chili powder. 

This is seriously good as Debbi says and easy too!  Give it a try! 

On its way into the oven

Here’s Debbi’s recipe:

Taco Corn Bread Casserole


1 package (8 1/2 oz) corn bread/muffin mix
1 egg
1/3 cup milk
3 cups cooked taco seasoned ground beef, or meat of your choice
1 can black beans
1 cup (8 oz) sour cream, light
1 cup colby jack, cheddar or mexican cheese, shredded and divided
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1 medium tomato, chopped
1 cup shredded lettuce
1 can sliced olives (optional, I didn't use)


In a large bowl, combine the corn bread, egg and milk until blended.  Spread into an 8 x 8 pan sprayed with cooking spray.  Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.  Combine taco meat and beans, spread over corn bread.  Combine sour cream, 3/4 cup cheese and onion.  Spread over meat mixture.  Bake for 20 - 25 minutes longer or until heated through and cheese is melted.  Sprinkle with tomato, lettuce and remaining 1/4 cup of cheese. 


Thanks for the recipe, Debbi!

  1. another delicious looking meal. Oh... I love this time of year, makes me want to cook EVERYTHING.

  6. Wow, and I just happen to have a bag of cornbread muffin mix in my freeze4r! Now I know what to do with it.

  7. What is better than cornbread and tacos?! Sounds amazing!

  8. Did you double the recipe to fit into a 9x13 pan? I am just wondering if an 8x8 pan would be too small to fit all those toppings on top of the corn bread?
    Going to the store to get the stuff now! Looks fabulous!

  9. Hey Pam. I'm totally with you on this one. I LOVE corn bread/muffins with Mexican food. We get New Mexico green chili's every year and I use them in so many things. Last Sunday morning we made corn muffins with NM Green chili and corn in them. They were fabulous with scrambled eggs w/cheese. Yikes that was a bad day for the old diet. I'm going to try this beautiful from Debbi and you. thanks for sharing it. Keri

I am happy to hear what you have to say, and appreciate your taking the time to stop by and leave a comment.
Keep smiling!

Having passed the grain stalls they came to the fritanguerías – the fried stalls – where sweaty, plump women dropped thick pieces of fish into enormous frying pans. Laid out on the wooden trays that served as counters, the fillets of fried fish immediately cooled to take on an almost mineral appearance while thick slices of fried plantain – patacones – were heaped around them.
