Cornbread Taco Casserole


Taco meat, tomatoes, corn, beans & cornbread in a delicious casserole!

I was in quite a rut of bad recipes before I made this casserole. {Don’t worry the Pumpkin Bread and Venison Tacos were after this, so not included in the “bad” recipes!} I had been trying out some new recipes mostly from Pinterest and at best they were turning out “so-so.”
I won’t bore you with the list but even things like pumpkin bars and cereal bars were turning out nasty.  Well actually the cereal bars tasted just fine but just wouldn’t stick together.  I ended up eating them on top of yogurt.
So I was looking for something new for dinner and had this casserole in my head.  I had made something similar before but couldn’t remember where the recipe had come from.  {Turns out, I had pinned it}.  So I just made this one up with ingredients I knew we liked.

This turned out really yummy and the only complaint I had from my family was that there wasn’t enough.  So next time I’m going to double everything but the cornbread and put it in a larger baking dish.  *Update:  I have made this several times.  Doubling everything and doubling everything besides the cornbread.  Both turn out great.  Pictures show everything doubled.
