Taco Mashed Potato Casserole

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Lorac

Taco flavored beef and creamy corn topped with cheese flavored mashed potatoes. The recipe calls for purchased mashed potatoes but this would be a great way to use up leftover potatoes. A child friendly recipe but you can spice it up by using jalapeno cheese.

It was a great idea in theory that didn't work out in reality. The creamed corn made it much to sweet. Nobody wanted seconds and I wound up tossing it.
