Mexican Bake

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


  • 1Brown the beef and add in 1 package of the taco seasonings as directed on the package.
  • 2While the beef is cooking, lightly fry up the red peppers in some of the salsa.
  • 3Preheat the oven to 350*
  • 4When 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.
  • 5In a deep baking dish, lay down the ground beef mixture and then the red peppers ontop of that.
  • 6Scramble 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!)
  • 7Pour the egg yolks over the red peppers and then layer on half the bag of shredded cheese.
  • 8Then 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.
  • 9Set in the oven until the top of the cornbread looks cooked. Then sprinkle the remainder of shredded cheese onto the top and let melt.
  • 10Take it out of the oven, cut and serve!
  • 11**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.
