One of our favorite dinners-so easy to make & so few ingredients needed! I alter the recipe by adding salsa instead of the tomato paste, and add about a cup of frozen corn to the meat mixture.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix cornbread according to package directions. Cook ground beef and drain fat. Add, taco seasoning mix and water according to package. Add tomato sauce. Cook until slightly thickened. Pour meat mixture in a 8x8 cassarole dish. Add layer of grated cheese and then spread the cornbread mixture on top spreading it to the edges of the pan. Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes or until brown.
  2. Optional: serve with sour cream and taco sauce.
