A co-worker made this last year for one of our potluck's (2014). She said it 's a family favorite. Well she must be right because she got so many requests for her recipe! I saw that there were so many recipes on here already w/this similar name but this one is actually just different enough, I thought I would go ahead & post it.

How To Make tj's mexican casserole

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare hamburger according to Taco Seasoning directions.
  • 2
    Add beans, corn and tomatoes stirring just to heat through.
  • 3
    Pour meat mixture into a sprayed casserole dish (13x9 is perfect).
  • 4
    Sprinkle ¾ cup of the cheese over meat.
  • 5
    Spread the UNCOOKED cornbread mixture over the meat.
  • 6
    Sprinkle the rest of the cheese over the cornbread.
  • Unfortunately the top did get a little overcooked (I'm still getting used to our oven).
    Bake casserole by cornbread package directions. Let rest about 10 minutes after baking. To serve: cut serving and place on plate cornbread side down. Top with sour cream if desired.
