Cowboy Cornbread

This recipe includes two things that most people from the South love...and that's Mexican style food and cornbread! Since I was born and raised in Texas I can never have enough of these two. I look forward to the weekends because my husband and I go to our favorite Mexican restaurant pretty much every single weekend (you can never have enough margaritas, chips, and queso). This recipe is super quick and easy to make (around 30 minutes start to finish) for an easy week day family dinner! My husband is the one who found this recipe on Pinterest one day, but we changed it up a little to make it how we thought would be best....Enjoy! 

1lb ground meat
1 can of drained rotel
1 can of ranch style beans drained
1 can of corn drained
1 box of corn bread

Step 1: 
Brown ground meat in pan. We seasoned our meat how we normally would with tonys (which is what every person from Louisiana uses for EVERYTHING, I would just use salt and pepper). While the meat is browning read the instructions on the cornbread box and prepare cornbread. 

Step 2:
Once the meat is browned add in drained cans of ranch style beans, corn, and rotel.
Let simmer for about ten minutes. While meat is simmering pour entire cornbread mixture into casserole dish as the bottom layer.

Step 3:
Add shredded cheese into the uncooked cornbread mixture and then pour meat mixture on top of the cornbread in the casserole dish. Once you have poured in the meat mixture flatten it out evenly but try not to mix the cornbread mixture in too much with the meat mixture. 

Step 4:
Top meat mixture off with shredded cheese as the top layer of the dish. Then cook in the oven for the time and temperature that is stated on the cornbread box (about 15 minutes at 400 degrees). Once it is done take it out, let it cool, and enjoy!! 

 My cooking sidekick and food taste tester approves!!
