Hi, I've been making this recipe for a few years now, for tonights dinner in fact, and I've always been asked for the recipe when I take it somewhere. It's originally out of a Weight Watcher soft side cookbook but doesn't taste like it!!

TACO CASSEROLE

Crust:

8 oz of dry corn bread stuffing mix from a box

1 14 oz. can of creamed corn

1/2 Cup of water

Mix together,,,place in bottom of a 9x13 pan sprayed with non-stick spray. BAKE at 375 degrees for 10 minutes and remove from oven.

Filling:

1 to 1 1/2 pounds of hamburger

1/2 cup diced onion

1 (14 oz can size) of black beans drained (could be pinto if you like that instead)

1 pkg of dry taco seasoning mix

1/2 cup of water

2/3 cup of salsa (whatever your favorite brand is)

8 oz. of shredded cheddar cheese

Cook hamburger and onion til done, drain if necessary. Add the rest minus the chese (salsa, taco seasoning, water, black beans) cook til just warmed.

Place the hamburger/bean mixture on top of the "crust" portion. Spread the shredded cheese over the top. Bake another 20 minutes or until bubbling.

Cut into squares and top with sour cream or quacamole if desired. Great with a green salad and mexican/spanish rice for a nice meal that is easy and MUY BUENO!!

Easily 8 big pieces and more if you cut them smaller. It's so easy and I always have the ingred. on hand. Hope you like it.
My yoga teacher has made it with chicken instead of hamburger and said it was great that way too since she tried it when I made it my way so I'm sure you can substitute around with what you'd like.
