Corn bread and cream-style corn add a touch of sweetness to this hearty casserole. I sometimes sprinkle crushed tortilla chips on top before baking.— Kelley Enyeart, Marceline, Missouri

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 each) equals 643 calories, 34 g fat (21 g saturated fat), 197 mg cholesterol, 1,230 mg sodium, 49 g carbohydrate, 2 g fiber, 36 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a skillet, cook beef, onion and green pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain and set aside. In a bowl, combine corn bread mixes, corn and eggs; mix well. Spread half into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Top with the meat mixture, 3 cups of cheese and the picante sauce. Spread with remaining corn bread mixture; sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 350— for 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Yield: 6 servings.
Helpful Hint: Although they're made with basically the same ingredients, picante sauce usually has a smoother texture and milder flavor than salsa.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 12, 2013

"I made a dish called Sombrero Casserole from Taste of Home many times for neighbors, church and my family. Haven't had it in a while and can't find my book. It was turned to this page and highlighted. As time passed I forgot about it and today started my search where it should have been. Its lost or gone. The above Casserole is not what I made in the past, no corn was in it and you made your own cornbread topping. What are the chances it has been updated thru time? The one I made was called Sombrero Bake. Any chances someone might have this recipe?"

"We skipped the green peppers and did not bake it with the picante sauce. It was really delicious and filling. We will be making this again."

"I have been making this receipe for a couple of years now. My family loves all the flavors combined. You can dress it up with other mexican favorites too! I do cut back on the cheese to help reduce some fat content."
