Dinner Tonight: Cornbread Mexican Casserole


A casserole with a cornbread layer...I am so into that.

Shopping List
1 package of cornbread mix (plus the egg and milk to prepare it)
1 pound of ground beef (or substitute ground turkey, pork or chicken)
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon Chili Powder
1 teaspoon Cumin
1 (6 oz) can tomato paste
1 can Rotel tomatoes
1 cup cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Prepare packaged cornbread mix per box instructions.  In a greased 8x8 baking dish, spread cornbread mixture across bottom.  Bake 9-10 minutes or until done.

In the meantime, on the stove, brown ground beef.  Add in onion and garlic and saute about 5 minutes.  Add in next 4 ingredients.  Simmer 10 minutes on low.  Pour ground beef mixture over cornbread, top with cheese and bake 10 minutes or until bubbly.

This is the kind of casserole I want on chilly fall night.  So yummy!

I've made something very similar with Bisquick...I bet the cornbread version is even better! Can't wait to try it! :).

We made this and it was yummy - we topped it with fresh cilantro. Crazy part - I think it was even better as leftovers!

I made this tonight for my husband and I. It was delicious! I had to tell him to stop eating it so we could have dinner tomorrow night. I follow all your blogs! Thanks you are amazing!
