Mexican Cornbread

Introduction: Mexican Cornbread

Directions:

(2) boxes of Jiffy Corn Bread Mix (8.5 oz)

(1) pound of ground beef

(2) cans of cream of corn

(1) box of Velveeta Mexican style Cheese (the small box - 16 oz)

(1) pack of taco season Mild

(a) Mix Jiffy Cornbread Mix per instruction on box

(b) Season meat to taste try not to use a lot of salt because once meat is cook you must add the 1 pack of taco seasoning once you drain grease (follow directions on pack) then add the cans of cream of corn

(c) Dice of Velvetta cheese into cubes

I prefer to use a deep class pan 13x9 dish - coat with butter - Pour Jiffy mix halfway up in dish. Scoop ground beef in the center - spread out a little staying off the edges, add cheese randomly, more or less depending on how much you like cheese. Cover with the remaining Jiffy Mix and cook per the instructions on the box. (usually 400 for 15-20 minutes) please watch, everyone over cooks differently.

    Thank you, z, for my delicious dinner tonight! I adapted it and added to it.

    I didn't have the mixes. So, I made the cornbread batter from scratch (http://www.theharvestkitchen.com/homemade-cornbrea... After browning, draining and seasoning the meat, I sautéed 1 cup each of chopped onion and green bell pepper, then added 1 cup of frozen corn, thawed. I mixed the meat and vegetables together. I poured all of the batter into the greased pan, then sprinkled the meat/vegetable mixture over it. Lastly, I grated cheddar on top. About 1 cup. Twenty minutes in a 400 degree F oven was perfect. Finally, I served it with guacamole, salsa and sour cream.

    I'm not trying to outdo you. I just saw your post this morning when I was wondering what I was going to make for dinner, and I had all of the ingredients except the salsa and avocado. Thanks for sharing your great recipe!

    Your way sounds awesome, and with me I have to watch with the little ones, some things they will not eat. But, this and it was quick and not having to take a lot of my time and its good, a very workable dish.

    I completely understand the need for simplicity and efficiency with little ones to watch.

    So often, people only comment that a recipe sounds great. I can say, that this recipe actually turns out great. Thanks, again.

    I have never seen anything like this before - it seems like a sort of cornbread shepherd's pie. But it looks tasty! :)
