MEXICAN CASSEROLE

 

For a complete meal in one dish, this recipe is easy to make and full of flavor! We love Mexican and Mexican-inspired food. We love cornbread. It was a no-brainer for us to combine the two, our take on chicken enchiladas and cornbread, and make a casserole out of the whole thing.
For this one, really all you have to do is raid your pantry and throw it all in the baking dish. If you want to throw black beans in there, go for it! If you want to add sautÈed onions and fresh chilies, perfect! You can customize it any which way and itíll always be amazingósimilarly, if you want to make it a little lighter, you can use skim milk, vegetable oil, reduced-fat cheese or egg whitesÖthereís really no end of options for this meal and we encourage you to try them all!

1 pound lean ground beef
1 can Ranch Style beans
