I made this for Cinco de Mayo...and my three friends loved it! I made it with a full box of cornbread mix and found it too sweet for myself (I prefer spicy).

How To Make mexican bake

  • 1
    Brown the beef and add in 1 package of the taco seasonings as directed on the package.
  • 2
    While the beef is cooking, lightly fry up the red peppers in some of the salsa.
  • 3
    Preheat the oven to 350*
  • 4
    When the beef is completely cooked with the seasoning, add in the can of corn and the cream cheese. Mix until the cream cheese has melted.
  • 5
    In a deep baking dish, lay down the ground beef mixture and then the red peppers ontop of that.
  • 6
    Scramble the egg yolks with some of the seasoning from the 2nd package of taco seasoning. And in a seperate bowl mix up half of the cornbread mix with the remainder of the taco seasoning. (Do not make the cornbread by the box directions. Keep it dry!)
  • 7
    Pour the egg yolks over the red peppers and then layer on half the bag of shredded cheese.
  • 8
    Then top the whole dish with the dry cornbread/taco mix. Cut the stick of butter into pads and place around the top of the cornbread.
  • 9
    Set in the oven until the top of the cornbread looks cooked. Then sprinkle the remainder of shredded cheese onto the top and let melt.
  • 10
    Take it out of the oven, cut and serve!

    **Side note** *If you like more spice, throw some of the salsa ontop of the groundbeef, or serve it on the side with sour cream. *You can also use the whole box of cornbread mix if you want it to be sweeter.
