MEXICAN CORNBREAD CASSEROLE
"Cornbread base topped with beef, zesty tomatoes, corn, and cheese for a flavorful baked entree.
Corn is a central ingredient in Mexican cooking, so cornbread gives this casserole a Mexican flair. The added touch of sweetness in cornbread makes this casserole a real kid-pleaser."
