Original recipe yields 6 servings



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish. In a skillet over medium-high heat, cook the ground beef with about half of the chopped onion until meat is no longer pink and onion is tender. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Drain juices and set aside.
  2. Empty packages of cornbread mix into a large bowl. Mix in the milk, eggs and creamed corn until smooth. Fold in the ground beef mixture and pickled jalapenos. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan, and sprinkle Cheddar cheese over the top.
  3. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.

I loved this recipe, after I made some tweaks. I used a package of taco seasoning with the meat, omitted the onion, jalapeno slices, salt, and pepper (taco seasoning has most all that), and used 1 cup lowfat cottage cheese instead of cheddar (as the "Broccoli Cheese Cornbread" recipe on this site called for). I baked it for 60 minutes, but it still wasn't done in the middle, so I microwaved those pieces and they were fine. I used "Jiffy" brand cornbread, which is very sweet; that, along with the can of creamed corn, overpowered the flavor of the taco seasoning, so I think next time I will add some chili powder. Note that skim milk works fine in this recipe. This was a super easy, filling, and large casserole, and I will definitely be making it again. Thanks for the recipe!



This was good, but next time I would either use more hamburger or less cornbread and I love cornbread.



This dish was hit w/my pickey toddler and husband. My husband requested I make this dish when his parents visit us next. I felt like a real chef! If feeding kids, you may want to substitute or omit the jaolpenos. My 18 mo old son didn't seem to mind them.
