Another Tex-Mex variation on tacos. Because you just can’t go wrong, really. I mean casseroles are yummy. Tacos are yummy. Taco casseroles… doubly yummy! Simple math. I love this particular cornbread taco casserole recipe because the prep work is super easy and fast. Plus, the warm cornbread on top makes a filling and cozy addition. It is really good. And the perfect way to warm you up on a chilly day. Mmmm…
To make your own Cornbread Taco Casserole, just brown ground beef with chopped onion in a large skillet over medium heat. Drain and return to skillet. Stir in taco seasoning, corn, salsa, and water. Bring to a simmer for about 5 minutes. Pour the mixture in a 9″x 13″ casserole dish and sprinkle liberally with cheesy goodness. Then mix up your cornbread ingredients in a separate bowl. Combine cornbread mix, eggs, and milk (and a little honey, too, if you want.). Pour mixture on top of cheese layer. Then bake at 350° for about 45 minutes until cornbread is set. Serve with a dollop of sour cream. Enjoy!
