Sombrero Casserole Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 35 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 small green pepper, chopped
  • 2 packages (8-1/2 ounces each) corn bread/muffin mix
  • 1 can (14-3/4 ounces) cream-style corn
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 cups (16 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 cup picante sauce


  • 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.
