Colorful zesty Stuffed Fiesta Cornbread Casserole, a one-pan dinner that will make you say ole!
This is where tacos and cornbread collide to create Stuffed Fiesta Cornbread Casserole.
It is a one-dish meal that satisfies all of your cravings for both tacos and cornbread. Golden cornbread is laced with green chilies and sweet corn, stuffed with abundant layers of your favorite taco fillings, and topped with more delicious golden cornbread, cheese, green onions, and cilantro.
Stuffed Fiesta Cornbread Casserole is hearty, gratifying, and loaded with flavorful veggies, ground beef, and cheese.
I like to consider it a well balanced comfort food.
This is a recipe I have been making for years, since my kids were little, maybe even B.C. (before children).
We used to call it “Taco Pie”, yet it is not a taco and it is not pie, so the name got an upgrade to one much more appropriate.
Whether you call it Stuffed Fiesta Cornbread Casserole or Taco Pie, just do not call me late for dinner!
Layer after layer of lively elements. It’s fun to prepare and fun to devour. It’s colorful and bountiful. This is a true fiesta.
Stuffed Fiesta Cornbread casserole feeds a load of people.
I use an 8 inch x 12 inch baking dish for this recipe. It makes for taller pieces. You can use the standard 9 x 13 inch baking dish if you like. It works beautifully as well.
In my house we get two to three meals from one pan of Stuffed Fiesta Cornbread Casserole.
It makes wonderful leftovers that are just as delicious as the first day you make it. Stuffed Fiesta Cornbread Casserole freezes very well. I like to keep an extra pan in the freezer for a busy day, or to share with a friend in need.
This is also an easy dish to convert to a vegetarian meal. Simply omit the ground beef and replace it with another can of beans.
Stuffed Fiesta Cornbread Casserole is perfect served solo, with a simple salad, or on a bed of shredded lettuce!
