1lb ground beef (i had 80%)
2 tbsp homemade taco mix (see below)
1 can of hunts petite diced tomatos
1 can of corn (or frozen corn, or fresh corn...)
1 box of cornbread mix (i used jiffy, you will need all ingredients needed to make the cornbread, most likely eggs and milk)
Preheat oven to 400F.
Brown meat, drain. Add tomatoes (i blended them into a puree because i cannot stand tomato chunks!) add taco seasoning, warm through. Mix in corn. Pour into pan.
Make corn bread mix as directed on box, and pour liquid on top of mixture in pan. (i used 1 box, but i really think it would have turned out better with 2 boxes, BUT the entire box is 1020 calories... so if you are calorie counting, you might want to make 1 box make due... it was fine, but if you want a LOT of cornbread, use 2...)
Cook for 20-30 minutes. Everything else is prepared, so you really just need to make sure the corn bread is cooked thoroughly. Remove and eat!!! (when cool enough of course!)
Now for the seasoning.
Mix all ingredients:
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
This meal was delicious and filling. I will make it again, no doubt. Even the picky husband loved it! I had to yell at him for eating too much!
