Blue Ribbon Recipe

An easy cornbread casserole with a Mexican flair that's budget-friendly. Cornbread, ground beef, corn, and cheese are layered to make this easy dinner. The ground beef has a lot of taco flavor and a little punch of heat from the green chiles. The corn and cheese help to mellow the spice. Sweet cornbread brings all the flavors together. This casserole is the perfect size for a family. But if you have several hearty eaters, you might want to double the recipe.
