Taco Casserole

I was going through some of my old photos, and realized that I had forgotten to post about this delicious casserole.  It may have been because this photo really doesn't do the dish justice, but trust me when I say, This dish is good!

It's super simple to throw together, and most of these ingredients I am sure most of you have on hand right now.  This is the perfect meal for those nights that you are either in a hurry or don't feel like slaving away in the kitchen.

1 pound Lean Ground Beef
1/2 of an onion (diced)
1 (1oz) pkg. of Taco Seasoning
1 (14oz) can Whole Kernal Corn (drained)
1 (10oz) can Rotel Tomatoes (not drained, if you like things spicy use HOT Rotel Tomatoes)
1 (14oz) can Black Beans (drained)
1 cup Cheddar Cheese (shredded)
1 pkg. of Cornbread (prepared but not baked; so you will also need the ingredients for the cornbread, I'm pretty sure you will need an egg and some vegetable oil. The portion amounts will differ due to the brand of cornbread you use also.)

In a large skillet over medium heat, saute the onion and beef. When the meat is done cooking place on a paper towel to drain any excess fat.  Next in a bowl, mix together the taco seasoning, corn, rotel, cheese and beans. Now add in the cooked meat and stir till everything is well combined.  

Pour the meat mixture into a lightly greased casserole dish or an 8x8 dish.  Prepare the cornbread as directed on package and pour over the top of the meat/bean mixture.  

Bake @*425 for 20-30 minutes or until the cornbread is lightly golden brown.  Serve with salsa and sour cream.

  4. I love oven baked recipe... My cooking (Japanese) is always on stove and it requires some time to be in the kitchen. As my kids get older, I need to adjust my time management skills by using oven more! Thanks for the delicious recipe. I have everything but corn bread. Will give it a try soon.
