Tasty Tuesday: (Maybe Meatless) Taco Bake

This recipe is from Emily, who writes, "This is a common meal in my home! I love it because it's so versatile. I started making this with taco meat, but with meat prices being so high, I started adding some filler ingredients & eventually just left out the meat altogether. You can use any combo of filler ingredients, or go with only meat."

The Ingredients:

  • 1 can refried beans
  • shredded cheese
  • 2 boxes corn bread mix
  • taco seasoning
"Filler" Options -  you can use any combination of the ingredients below:
  • 1 can black beans
  • approximately 1/3 bag of lentils, cooked
  • approximately 1.5 cups of rice, cooked
  • ground beef, cooked

The Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray 13x9 pan with cooking spray & spread refried beans to cover the bottom. It will be just a thin layer.

In a bowl, combine desired filling ingredients & add taco seasoning to taste, then spread over refried beans. Cover with shredded cheese to taste.

Mix corn bread according to package directions, then spread over the filling & cheese. Bake at 400 degrees for about 25 minutes.
