My dad used to make this and it was GREAT!!! My husband and daughter enjoy this and its a pretty popular recipe in our house. This recipe can easily be doubled for potluck dinners or big get togethers. Be sure not to cook the cornbread before you put the mixture on top!!!

Yeeeee Hawwwwww!!! This is great!!! I love the flavor that the ranch beans give this casserole and I used Jiffy cornbread mix which gave it a sweet balance. I used half and half instead of milk for my cornbread and I took NightOwl's suggestion and added an onion plus I added a large jalapeno to the green pepper saute. Of course, I seasoned the veggies with salt and pepper while sauteeing for flavor. This had wonderful flavor and it's very hearty!! Plus, this was very inexpensive to make, the whole huge casserole cost around $7.00 for me!!!! Wonderful, will make again, thanks!!!

This was good,quick,and easy. I did add chopped onion along with the chopped pepper to the meat mixture. I also added about 3/4 t ground cumin and about 1 T chili pepper to the corn/meat/bean mixture for a little extra flavor. I served it with shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes,and grated cheese. My three teenage boys loved it. They suggested also serving it with black olives and sour cream next time. Will certainly make this in the future.
