Easy Cornbread Taco Pie Instructions:
Start by preheating your oven and then prepare your baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. For this recipe, I used a standard 9-inch pie pan.
In a skillet cook and crumble your ground beef. Once it’s done then drain the fat.
Add taco seasoning, salsa, and cream cheese. You can use a taco seasoning packet or your own seasoning. This is my recipe for homemade taco seasoning. I love making this and keeping it in the pantry.
Cook your seasoned beef and cream cheese until the cream cheese is melted. Once all the ingredients are well combined you can add this to the bottom of your prepared pie pan.
Next, drain your canned corn well and add to the top of your pie. Leaving to much water in the corn will lead to a soupy pie.
Mix your cornbread according to box instructions. Each brand could be different but mine called for 1 egg and 1/3 cup milk.
Once it is well mixed then spoon this on top of your pie. Top with shredded cheese. Last, bake for until cornbread is cooked through. I garnished mine with fresh cilantro then served.
