Easy taco bake that reheats wonderfully!

The only change was a 4 oz can of green chilies into the corn bread. Didn't add much that I could tell .Didn't hurt it either. I will never add the honey again. It was way too sweet for my taste. I may just take corn tortillas and layer them several deep in the dish and then add the meat/bean mix. I might try adding some cheese to the meat mix too, basically it was good ,just needs tweaking in my opinion.Read More
Not bad...made it per the recipe (I had all ingredients as listed and didn't substitute anything...omitted the honey because the Jiffy cornbread mix is already sweet--glad I did, otherwise, it would've been mega sweet and I might've only given this a two-star rating) although I thought it was a close to being dry. I rinsed and drained the beans...I thnk the next time I'll try not rinsing or draining the beans).Read More

I will definitely make this again. I left the honey out of the corn bread as Jiffy mix is already plenty sweet. I also used a whole can of black beans rather than half. The result was delicious and very filling.
Only made 2 changes due to diet. Used ground turkey and gluten-free cornbread mix. But other than that followed exactly and it was amazing. Topped it with shredded lettuce and sour cream. Will make this again at husbands request. Thank you for the recipe
So, I made this dish tonight. I made some changes because that is how I roll. I wanted to put my own little spin on it. Here are the changes that I made: meat loaf mix ( less grease to drain, more flavor to the meat), 1/2 of an onion & 1/4 red pepper when meat was browned and drained. I added with the taco seasoning and waited then added salsa (3/4 cup because I had the chunky kind). Okay, the corn bread part. I was born in the north where the corn bread is well corn bread...its kinda dry. In the south it is sweet and soft. Soo, I appreciate the south and their take on everything being sweet like sweet tea, sweet honey butter with biscuits and sweet corn bread. I used creamed corn 1/2 cup. Awesome!!! I buttered the pie pan like it was getting ready for a slip and slide. 33 minutes in an oven that started out cold on 350, I was questioning it. Thinking this person better not be lying to me about this part, because the back up plan was grilled cheese sandwiches. 5 mins to sit. I used a serving pie knife. It came out prefect. The tortilla chips were crushed to the size of corn flakes. It was great. No one talked and when I asked if it was ok my two kids and husband asked when will I make it again and I was told to put a rush on it and do it again. Highly recommend.
I was very skeptical trying this recipe using corn bread, but it was really scrumptious! My hubby loved it! I did not use honey or the oil. Just followed the instructions on back of corn bread box on their ingredients to use. I did use 3/4 cups of drained black beans! It was a great addition to the Taco Pie recipe. My taco pie came out perfect. Was not dry at all. I did use Daisy sour cream to put on top with cut up Avocado and just used crumbled Tostitos chips on top. We definitely will be using this recipe again! Thanks for a great recipe!
This is a nice thing to do with left over taco meat. I've made it a couple times now and it goes over really well. This last time I was out of tortilla chips, so to substitute for that I brushed a couple corn tortillas with butter, cut them into strips, and sprinkled them over the cheese. Definitely plan to keep making this!
We loved it! I recommend keeping the honey in the recipe. It actually helps the cornbread get a fine, crispy edge that is delicious. The cornbread is already sweet but adding the honey doesn’t really add any more sweetness and is worth the added texture. The only thing I changed was I added a little more heat. I chopped a few canned jalapeños and added them to the meat mixture. Yum!

This was pretty good and my entire family liked it. I used homemade taco seasoning (Taco Seasoning I) and omitted the honey and corn oil. I used a sweet gf cornbread mix and the honey was unnecessary and there was no need for the oil. I did use corn in my cornbread layer. I will be making this again.
This was really good! I went with the suggestions and did not include the honey, and it was plenty sweet.
This was great! I used ground turkey because it’s what I had, but I’m sure ground beef would be even better. I skipped the honey, since Jiffy is already sweet. I used cantina style salsa, the full can of black beans and half a can of shoepeg corn. Topped with cilantro after taking it from the oven—meant to throw some green onions on top as well, but forgot. This is a keeper!
Add more cheese!
I diced onion, added enchilada sauce for moisture, can of retried beans, and corn in the cornbread and meat mixture. No added sugar; added can of diced tomatoes. My family loved it!
The corn bread was too sweet and I didn't even add the honey. I found it very unappealing, but my husband and daughter LOVED it. He even had seconds which he normally does not do. He is more of a dessert person. I added a half can of chili beans to the filling and I added the optional corn to the corn bread. I will make it again because the family liked it, but I may add some chopped jalapeno to the corn bread mix to cut some of the sweetness. I served with lettuce, tomato, sour cream, and additional salsa.
Loved it! Easy to make, fun to eat. I made my own corn bread batter only because I was too lazy to go to store to buy a mix. I might try pouring cornbread batter on top of meat mixture. Shall I call it “Mexican Shepherds Pie”?
Really good and easy! As other reviews I did not add the honey to cornbread mixture
This was fun and something different for our family. We don't tend to use much salt in our cooking, so next time, I would reduce the amount of taco seasoning. I'm still going to make this again. Very easy and tasty!
This is delicious. I made as written except I didn't have corn chips. Do add the honey as it adds a delicious component without making it too sweet.
Super yummy!!! Made as listed (no chips)...great out of the oven and leftovers!!
Loved the taste but it was a little dry. Wondering how to add a little more moisture with drowning the dish. Any suggestions?
Made this recipe following the directions -- no changes. We LOVED it!!! I will definitely be making it in the future often!
