Beefy Corn Bread Casserole Recipe

To stretch our grocery budget, we eat a lot of soups and pots o' beans. This satisfying Mexican corn bread always livens up the meal. Like many of my recipes, this one came from a church cookbook. -Patty Boling Seymour, Tennessee

MY REVIEW

LOVE this recipe! I sought this out to replace an old recipe I lost a few years ago, very similar in concept. The cornbread in this one is even more delicous than the old recipe so I'm actually happy I lost that one! One thing I carried over from the old recipe, however, is adding about 1/2 cup of salsa to the meat mixture - this makes it especially moist and flavorful and doesn't interfere with the cornbread rising at all.

Cheesy and meaty with a little bit of zing. Wonderful to eat on a cold night! Great comfort casserole!

One of the best recipes around! I have made it dozens of times. Instead of the ground beef mixture, if I have leftover chili, I'll use that. I have used all types of leftovers for the ground beef mixture and no matter what I use, this casserole is always the best. Also, to reduce calories a little, I use 1/4 cup water and 1/4 cup of oil instead of 1/2 cup oil. Doesn't seem to make any difference in the taste or consistency. This is definitely a 10 star recipe!!

I made this the other night and it was awesome. I couldn't find a 13*9 in pan so I had to cook it longer but it was worth it!!!
