Ground beef, corn, and ranch-style beans come alive with plenty of Mexican spices beneath a fluffy cornbread topping that is out of this world. This Cornbread Taco Bake has appeared on my family’s tables for decades. It is the perfect kind of comfort food–warm and hearty and filling. My kids love this cornbread taco bake because it tastes incredible. I love it because it’s simple and I almost always have the core ingredients in the pantry.
This is one of those recipes that we’ve had for so long, that I can’t remember when we didn’t make it. I first tasted this at my sister-in-law’s house soon after we were married. (I think this began as a Pampered Chef recipe.)
I never cared for cornbread, growing up. It was always dry and crumbly with a lackluster taste. Sorry, mom! But, when it’s incorporated into a recipe like this, where it is placed directly on top of a savory filling, I’m on board big time.Casseroles are a gift in life.
