Boxed cornbread mix, hamburger, corn, and a few additional ingredients make for a filling dinner, and best of all, this dish reheats very well.

Mexican Cornbread Casserole
Mexican Cornbread casserole has been one of my favorite weeknight meals to make. I love how simple this casserole is to put together. You with some taco seasoned ground beef and a few extra ingredients you can turn this recipe into something your family will love.
Casseroles are a wonderful dish to make for a meal during the week. This one is very easy to put together. I like to keep a couple of boxes of cornbread mix on hand for recipes just like this one. You can be flexible in this recipe—you could use any sausage instead of the hamburger meat in here. If you have a few extra leftover vegetables in the refrigerator, green beans, and carrots are just as tasty in here is the corn.
You may want to serve this recipe with sour cream or even some salsa. I think this makes a delicious meal you can toss into the oven and let it cook while you take care of other things when you get home from dinner. This casserole is a favorite of mine because it reheats so well so you can enjoy it another night or two if you like.
