I used the 2 boxes of cornbread mix like others said. I also added a can of corn (drained) and some black olives to the meat mixture. To the cornbread I added some chopped green onions, along with the cheese. Served with a salad. YUM!!!!

We enjoyed this casserole. I did also make some changes as suggested. I added a can of petite tomatoes without the juice, half a small bag of frozen corn, a can of black beans and after the meat and onions were browned I added a can of Mexican style Campbell's cheddar cheese soup. I then proceeded with the Jiffy mix topping. I made it according to the box but I did use 2 boxes for a 3x9 inch pan. I also used more than a pound of meat. Half hour on 350 was plenty of time.

My family loved it. I did double the cornbread, like others, and added corn. My husband says it's a keeper!
