The meat filling was a little bland, but perfect for children. Next time I make I will add a little onion, cumin and chili powder to the mix. For this attempt I used black beans rather than kidney beans (they are higher in fiber), and added a can each of corn and sliced olives to the mixture. To the muffin mix I added two chopped green chilis. I then topped with 2% cheese and served with salsa. It was a hit. Cooking on the stove makes the corn bread softer and fluffier. It was a nice change as I have always baked this. The other advantage being, since I don't own oven safe pans I have to dirty two in order to make in the oven. This is much simplier and leaves fewer dishes to wash.
If you need an easy week night dinner for which most people will have the ingredients on hand this is it. In fact I was able to help my daughter with her homework while I made it, it is that easy.
It was pretty good. I will try it again this time making some changes. I really like the cornbread topping as it was the best part. The changes will definitely be to the meat part.
This recipe is great! My family loves it. I add green chili's either to the muffin mix or the beef. I also add onion to the beef. If you don't have taco seasoning, I use chili powder, garlic powder, cumin, salt, and cayanne. I just eyeball it.
I made several changes to this recipe, and it was pretty good. I added onion to the beef, removed the beans, used 15oz can of tomato sauce instead of 8oz can and removed the water altogether. Also added a 15oz can of corn, a dash of crushed red pepper, and used a Monterey Jack and Cheddar cheese mix. Right before serving, I also added some fresh cilantro on top.
Great! It's our new favorite meal. It's quick and easy, you can change the meat mixture to your personal preference. I added garlic and minced onion to hamburger then added taco seasoning, kidney beans, water, diced salsa tomatoes. Then add cornbread mix.
Very good and EASY!!!! I used ranch style beans instead of kidney beans. I also didn't use the green onion. I will definately be making this again.
This was really good! I browned the meat on the stove, added all the ingredients and then transferred it to a lasagne pan. I added most of a 16 oz can of corn and about a half a cup of sliced black olives. Then I dolloped the cornbread mixture over the whole thing, sort of cut it through with a knife and baked in a 400 degree oven until the cornbread was done. Top with cheese, green onion and a few more black olives and bake until the cheese is melted. Good stuff -- My 11yo picky eater even loved it!
This is a new family favorite! I added diced onion to the browning ground beef, a little more like 10 oz of the tomato sauce (as I only had a 15 oz can), and one can of diced tomatoes drained. It takes more like 20 minutes on med-low temp, but the 15-17 min is more accurate for med temp.
