Cornbread Casserole

Has anyone else ever tried cornbread casserole before? It's something that we used to have as kids and I will be bringing it back out for mine because it is filling and cheap. This and a crock-pot full of dried beans makes a very inexpensive meal and it goes a long way.

Ingredients:
1/4 pound butter, melted
1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn
1 (15 ounce) can creamed corn
1 (8.5 ounce) package corn bread mix
1 ounce sour cream
Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. In a mixing bowl, combine butter, whole corn, cream corn, corn muffin mix and sour cream. Fold all ingredients together, pour into 2 quart casserole dish. Bake for 1 hour.

I tried this recently, but it did not make a good impression at my house. I thought it was okay, but the children complained, if you can believe it, of it being too sweet.

If you add some jalapenos and shredded cheddar cheese to that recipe, you'd have Mexican corn bread. We love Mexican corn bread any time and especially with a pot of beans. This is making me hungry.

Smokinhog I am definitely adding jalapeno, cheddar cheese, and maybe even a little bacon next time I make it. I added some diced onions to the batch I made the other day and they worked well too.

Cornbread lends itself very well to Mexican recipes. I do something similar to this that's more like a pie. I layer cornbread mix and corn on the bottom, salsa, ground beef, and cheese in the middle, and another layer of cornbread on the top. Quite tasty, but it's a one-time kind of thing--the cornbread dries out the meat too much for it to make for good leftovers.

Tessa that sounds really good too. I think my kids would probably enjoy that. I wonder if you used a can of undrained Rotel instead of salsa if that would keep it from drying out so much.

That would probably work and give it a Latin flavor.

This recipe sounds good but it sounds really filling! I don't think I would be bothered by the sweetness either. I think it would be good for a side dish as well.

It's perfect for parties. Whenever we have a big group of people come over, I whip up a dish. The sweetness works perfectly with the salsa. You can also add a packet of taco seasoning to round out the flavor and give it more oomph.

I'll have to try the Rotel trick--that might work out!

My dad would make a cornbread casserole every Thanksgiving. I was never that crazy about it. I wouldn't mind trying the Mexican version though. Jalapenos can only improve any dish.

I haven't encountered ever cornbread casserole, even cornbread itself. But I have been hearing from a lot of people that it's very good. And with this simple and easy recipe, I think it's very doable without having much of a hassle, and that soon I will be able to taste it myself, and share my opinion about it.
