What's for Dinner?

Here is what I made for dinner tonight.  You could substitute ground chicken or turkey or vegetarian crumbles OR black beans and refried beans.  Sorry-no pictures. 

Mexican Casserole

1 lb. hamburger
1 package Taco Seasoning (I use the less sodium, no msg one)
1 can diced tomatoes
1 box frozen corn, defrosted 
1 cup shredded cheese
2 boxes Jiffy corn Muffin mix

Brown the Hamburger.  Drain the fat.  Add in Seasoning, tomatoes and corn.  Simmer until warmed through.  Place in a casserole dish.

Prepare the Corn muffin mixes per the box (1 egg and 1/3 cup milk for each box), adding a little more milk so the mixture is pourable.
Pour onto the hamburger mixture in the casserole dish-so that it covers the mixture. 
Top with Shredded cheese.

Bake at 400 for 30 minutes.  Check to make sure the Cornbread is cooked all the way through in the center-bake in 5 minute intervals if more time is needed.

Serves 6 (?)  (There are 2 are us and we probably have leftovers for 2 nights)

Variations:  add in chiles, black beans, use Salsa instead of diced tomatoes.  Add more cheese on top for the last 5 minutes to get a gooey effect.
