I created this Mexican ground beef casserole when I wanted something different that I could make ahead if I wanted to. Double the recipe for company!

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir ground beef and onion in the hot skillet until beef is browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and discard grease.

  • While the beef is cooking, make stuffing. Bring water and butter to a boil in a medium saucepan. Stir in stuffing mix; cover. Remove from heat. Let stand for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.

  • Stir diced tomatoes, chili powder, cumin, and hot sauce into the beef mixture. Simmer for 2 minutes. Add corn and Cheddar cheese. Simmer until cheese is melted completely, about 1 minute. Transfer mixture to a casserole dish. Spread cornbread stuffing evenly over the top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until browned, 20 to 30 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

You can use shredded Mexican-style cheese instead of Cheddar.

For a healthier option, use ground turkey and low-fat cheese.

Editor's Note:

The directions for making the stuffing are based on the particular brand mentioned. Follow instructions on the box if using a different brand.

I followed the recipe as written. It turned out underwhelming. Not sure if it needed more vegetables, rice, potatoes or what to make it more substantial. Maybe the stuffing was the reason it wasn't good. There are many other better Mexican casseroles on the website. Read More

Nice and easy dinner. I added seasoning salt and garlic powder to the meat, since I wanted a little something extra. Delicious topped with a bit of sour cream. Read More
