This dish was very easy to make and smelled wonderful while baking. I used 1 lb of ground beef instead of the ground turkey and I didn't have a mexican cornbread mix, so I made my own (I submitted recipe for the mexican cornbread to Recipezaar". My husband is not a big fan of Mexican dishes, but he went back for seconds on this one! Will surely make again.

My husband asked me if this could be his new favorite food. I told him I was okay with that! This really was a nice casserole. I made it with all of the fattening things since my son is so picky about flavors, so maybe that made it extra good! Thanks for the recipe.

I made this with one of the gluten-free corn bread recipes. It was great!

Very good! I am a big fan of Mexican dishes and cornbread - I liked having both in one dish. I couldn't find Mexican cornbread, so just used regular Jiffy. I also used salsa rather than picante sauce (what I had on hand). Thank you for a new recipe!

this was good and has potential. i made it exactly as posted the first time, but the next i make this, i will use low fat shredded cheese, low fat sour cream, 1% milk snd low sodium taco seasoning mix. this may add some fat grams but i think it will also add more flavor too.

This recipe was a hit! My husband said it was the best meal I had made yet! I only used 1/2 an onion, a jalapeno pepper as the "green pepper" and the 8.5oz Jiffy cornbread mix as previous posters suggested. All in all, it was an easy and delicious recipe. I will be making this over and over again! Thank you!

I prepared this for a potluck yesterday and was disappointed. First, your recipe didn't state the size of the can of corn (I figured it was the 14.5 oz. size); and it didn't say what size the cornbread package should have been (I used the 8.5 oz. Jiffy mix). I used ground beef instead of turkey and reduced the cheese to 12 oz. It turned our VERY sloppy. However, I must say the taste was quite good. Next time (yes, I will try it again) I'll drain the corn and see if that helps or possibly use a can of chili beans. At least half of it was left from the potluck so I reheated it and gave it to DH for dinner. He liked the flavor as well.

Absolutely AWESEOME recipe! My family and I loved it! I have to admit I used regular sharp cheddar cheese instead of lowfat. Definitely a keeper! Thanks for sharing, cbrangel!
