Easy Cheesy Corn Bread Taco Bake Recipe

This was one of those dinners that just happen by accident. I ended up needing a dinner at the last minute when plans fell through and I had to scrounge through the pantry for ingredients.

And the end result was a delicious meal that my family begged me to make again the next week. I love it when these happy accidents happen.

This makes a lot so if you’re a smaller family or aren’t trying to fill up a teenage boy then you can half the recipe. Ty ate half of this all by himself.

I think next time I make it I might try to sneak a can of diced tomatoes or maybe a can of Rotel in there with the meat mixture. That would be delicious!
