Taco Cornbread Bake

This was super easy to make and delicious.  Another yummy ground beef recipe!  I made this for the first time tonight and it was so good.


1 lb ground round
1 packet taco seasoning
1/3 cup water
1 can Rotel tomatoes and green chiles
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 box Jiffy corn bread mix, plus ingredients to make cornbread
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
sour cream

In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in the water and taco seasoning. Simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in 1/2 cup of cheese, Rotel tomatoes and black beans. Spoon into a greased 8x8 baking dish.

Prepare corn bread mix according to package directions for corn bread. Spread over beef mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 20 minutes.

Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake 3-5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.  Serve with sour cream and salsa.

** I didn't have a can of rotel tomatoes and green chiles.  I used a can of diced tomatoes and another can of green chiles.  I did not use sour cream or salsa on top and it was super bueno! Kid friendly recipe.  My kids liked it at least.  Ages 17, 5.5, 3.5 and 9 months.
