I first came across this as a crock pot recipe but I knew it would be simple to adapt and make quickly in the oven. It was tasty and fast. One to keep in the files for the future.


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 tbsp fajita seasoning
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 15 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 14 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 4 oz can diced chilies
  • 12 oz frozen corn
  • 2 tbsp taco sauce
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 package (8-1/2 ounces) corn bread/muffin mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk




Preheat oven to 375.

Saute beef and onions over medium heat. Drain off excess fat once browned.




Add in corn, beans, tomatoes, chilies, garlic salt, seasoning, taco sauce and cilanto.  Saute for 10 minutes.


Transfer mixture to an oven safe dish.



Mix remaining ingredients together and spread over top




Bake for 20 minutes or until cornbread mixture is set. Enjoy!
