This cheesy, kicked-up beef and corn casserole is topped with cornbread to make a hearty dish that the whole family will enjoy!


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 can (16 ounces) whole kernel corn, undrained
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) Pace® Picante Sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (about 2 ounces)
  • 1 box (about 8 ounces) corn muffin mix


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 375°F. Cook the beef in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat until it's well browned, stirring often to separate meat. Pour off any fat.

  • Step 2

    Stir the corn with its liquid, picante sauce and cheese in the skillet. Spoon the beef mixture into a 2-quart shallow baking dish. Prepare the corn muffin mix according to the package directions. Using 2 spoons, drop the batter evenly on top of the beef mixture.

  • Step 3

    Bake for 25 minutes or until the corn muffin topping is golden brown.
