No idea where this came from except that I wrote it down on a post-it note, so I’m sure it came from the internet somewhere.
Taco Casserole (yeah, I know…catchy! HAH)
1 lb ground beef (or turkey, but I used beef)
1 package taco seasoning (and I added a couple shakes of cayenne)
onion (optional…I skipped)
1 cup (or more…I used more) grated cheese
1 can refried beans
1 or 2 packages of cornbread mix (I used one and it was corn MUFFIN mix…don’t know if there’s a difference or not)
Preheat oven to 425. Brown meat (and onion if you’re using it), drain, and add taco seasoning. Spray 9x13 dish with non-stick cooking spray, spread beans in bottom of dish. Spread meat mix over beans, then cheese. Prepare cornbread mix according to package directions and spread over top. Bake 20 minutes until cornbread is done.
Serve with shredded lettuce, diced tomatos, sour cream, salsa, ranch, etc.
KC isn’t a fan of cornbread, but he liked it! =) And I loved it. =) I think it serves around 6 or 7 but we all had seconds, so maybe 5 is more accurate. LOL.
