I made this vegetarian. I was not expecting to like this so much. It seemed like a lot of canned food, but it also seemed super easy, which it was. I did not use beef or cheese. I didn't have any beef and I had already snacked on cheese that day, so I didn't want anymore. I used canned kidney beans in place of the ground beef. I didn't miss the cheese at all even though I'm a big cheese lover. I mixed the canned kidney beans, canned corn, canned diced tomatoes, and a large can of whole olives with the taco seasoning and used this as the base. Then I put a layer of raw chopped onion on top of the mix. I didn't pre-cook any part of it because I didn't need to blend the flavors into any meat. I also put a layer of very thinly sliced radishes, four radishes total. I really only did this because I had four radishes and no plans for them. I then put the cornbread mix on top of that. When the dish had cooked for about 5 minutes, I sprinkled fresh chopped cilantro on top of it to make it look pretty. The only thing I would do different if I make it again is to use a can of diced tomatoes with green chiles instead of plain diced tomatoes. It was kind of bland.
Edit: I had to lower this rating from 4 to 3 stars because I was giving it an "I like it" with a shrug, but what I really meant was it was OK.
