Beefy Corn Bread Casserole Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 40 min. YIELD:8-12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 to 3 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped
  • 2 packages (8-1/2 ounces) corn bread/muffin mix
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 can (14-3/4 ounces) cream-style corn
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3 cups (12 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, divided

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet, cook the beef, onion and peppers over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain and set aside. In a small bowl, combine the corn bread mix, salt, baking soda, corn, milk, oil and eggs.
  • 2. Pour half in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Layer with half of the cheese and all of the beef mixture. Top with remaining cheese. Carefully spread remaining batter over top.
  • 3. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Yield: 8-12 servings.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
