The corn bread and beef bake together in the same casserole dish, making this entree convenient. It's packed with tempting seasonings, and the cheese and onions make an attractive topping. Everyone who tries it likes it.
When I was working on the local election board in the '50s, one of my co-workers gave me this recipe, and it has been a family favorite ever since. It's quick to make for unexpected company or easily doubled for a potluck.
Comforting mac and cheese with a touch of taco flavoring and tortilla-chip crunch…no wonder kids love it! Moms will love that it's ready in no time flat and isn't expensive to make. —Betsy King, Duluth, Minnesota
I usually keep a can of sloppy joe sauce in the pantry, because our kids love sloppy joes. But sometimes I don't have buns on hand. With this fun casserole, we can still enjoy the flavor that they love in a flash. The bun-like top crust is made with biscuit mix, sprinkled with sesame seeds and baked until golden.

"This hearty hot dish relies on a package of au gratin potatoes for simple preparation," notes Linda Muir of Big Lake, Minnesota. Chock-full of beef, potatoes, corn, tomatoes and cheese, this southwestern supper is sure to be a hit in your home.
"If your gang likes stuffed cabbage, they'll love this filling, beefy recipe. And you'll love that it has all the flavor-but with a lot less work than stuffed cabbage!"

I like to make this dish when time before supper is short. It serves two to three people, but if we have unexpected company I double the ingredients and use a 9-in. x 13-in. pan. The I call it my "Please Stay Casserole"!
A friend shared the recipe with me, and I've prepared it monthly ever since. The crust is made from refrigerated crescent roll dough. While the ground beef is browning, I simply press the dough into a baking dish. Guest always comment on the tasty crust as well as the zesty filling and crunchy topping.—Patricia Eckard, Singers Glen, Virginia
There are only four ingredients in this quick recipe—and you're likely to have them all on hand. Kids love it because, as the name suggests, it combines two of their favorite fast foods. —Karen Owen, Rising Sun, Indiana
