The only problem I had with this dish was... no leftovers! This is a super easy casserole that your family will love. A little spicy and a little sweet, perfect combination with the cornbread and taco meat.

Definitely add this to your back-to-school menu. It's quick to throw together and easy on the budget. The meat is full of flavor from the taco seasoning and a little punch from the Rotel. Corn and cheese help to mellow the flavors and not make this very spicy. Sweet cornbread on top is perfect and marries together to make a wonderful casserole with a Mexican flair. This is the perfect size for a family, but if you have hearty eaters you may want to double the recipe. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
