KRAFT Mexican Style Shredded Four Cheese with a Touch of PHILADELPHIA
I used the 2 boxes of cornbread mix like others said. I also added a can of corn (drained) and some black olives to the meat mixture. To the cornbread I added some chopped green onions, along with the cheese. Served with a salad. YUM!!!!
I didn't use a 13x9 casserole b/c that would have made the whole thing about an inch thin. I also used (half a can) of tomatoes w/chiles and I subbed chili beans for the black beans and can of enchilada sauce b/c that's all I had. Made it otherwise as per recipe, and put it in a 2.5 qt. round casserole. That was a perfect size. Pretty good, cheap meal. Thanks!
We enjoyed this casserole. I did also make some changes as suggested. I added a can of petite tomatoes without the juice, half a small bag of frozen corn, a can of black beans and after the meat and onions were browned I added a can of Mexican style Campbell's cheddar cheese soup. I then proceeded with the Jiffy mix topping. I made it according to the box but I did use 2 boxes for a 3x9 inch pan. I also used more than a pound of meat. Half hour on 350 was plenty of time.
My family loved it. I did double the cornbread, like others, and added corn. My husband says it's a keeper!
This was very good. I added a can of corn and more garlic. The corn bread was great on top. Will make again for sure.
This recipe is delicious just the way it is, no changed needed!
Not that good.
Instead of enchilada sauce used 10oz can of chopped tomatoes with jalapenos. I still added the additional chopped Jalapeno to meat mixture. Also used 1/2 teaspoon of roasted, chopped garlic instead of powder and no cumin.Sprinkled 1 cup of Colby Jack cheese on top of meat mixture and added rest to two boxes of muffin mix. Everyone liked it. Will make again!
