Wanted to share one of my family’s favorite meals!
We call it cowboy casserole and it makes a lots of food for cheap.
Our kids are little so we make it mild, but I’ve definitely used the original rotel and I’ve put sliced jalapeños on top of the cornbread when I wanted some heat. I love this recipe bc it’s totally customizable and you can switch up the flavor a lot.
1-1.5 lb ground beef
1 can ranch style beans
1 can rotel
1 can whole kernel corn (drained)
1 can cream style corn
2 boxes jiffy cornbread mix (you’ll need eggs and milk to make the cornbread according to directions).
1. Preheat oven to 400°
2. In a large pan, brown ground beef with whatever seasonings you want. I usually do onion and garlic powder, chili powder, cumin, salt. Drain meat when done.
3. Add rotel, beans and whole kernel corn to the ground beef. Bring to a boil and the lower to let simmer while you prepare the cornbread.
4. In a mixing bowl, pour in the 2 boxes of cornbread mix, with the other ingredients according to directions on the box. Once all stirred up, add the can of cream style corn and stir.
5. Put ground beef mixture in a 13×9 casserole dish, and top with cornbread mixture.
6. Bake at 400° for 20-30 mins, until cornbread is golden.
My husband eats it with hot sauce, my kids eat it plain, and I throw shredded cheese and sour cream on mine and mix it all up in a bowl
