- Bake 35 - 40 minutes or until corn muffins are golden brown and casserole is heated completely.
- Remove from oven, let cool slightly before serving.
Quick and tasty - love the cinnamon/chili powder combo and how fast this was in the oven! My jar of salsa was only 12 ounces so I reduced the amount of Boca Meatless Ground Burger to 8 ounces. The cornbread on top is so good. A great "any night" vegetarian dinner.
This was really good, it was very quick to assemble. It did turn out a little watery for some reason so next time I will try halving the salsa. Thanks for the recipe.
