Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch casserole dish.

  • Mix corn, mushrooms, green bell pepper, salsa, tomato, and nacho cheese sauce together in a bowl. Layer mixture over the bottom of the prepared dish. Mix ground beef and taco sauce together in a separate bowl; add to the corn mixture in the dish and stir together. Layer potato puffs on top of casserole. Top with shredded Mexican cheese blend.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until beef is no longer pink, about 25 minutes.

  • Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Broil casserole until top is golden brown, about 5 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Do not use creamed corn in this recipe.

Any Cheddar or mozzarella cheese blend will do.

You can adjust the heat of the dish by adding in jalapeno peppers, or using a hot salsa and/or nacho cheese sauce.
