Corn Bread Taco Bake

22 01 2009


This Christmas I asked for a lot of cookbooks.  I got 2 Barefoot Contessa books and a book called “Incredibly Easy, One Dish”.   That’s where I found this wonderful dish.


If you love cornbread, you have to try this recipe.  It was delicious.  Absolutely delicious.  WH ate so fast and so much I couldn’t believe me eyes.  He loves cornbread just like I do. As the title implies, this is a one dish meal.  I dirtied one skillet and one baking dish, that’s all.  Another easy clean up.  And there was cornbread!  YUM.


Again, I halved the recipe but I made the full package of cornbread.  So my version may not look like the intended product, but it was good.   I really really really recommend this recipe.  It was so tasty.  Definitely getting added to the rotation.

Mmmm that looks so good with the cheesy cornbread on top. I got your comment – I’d love to give designing an avatar for your “Tour De Foods Blog” a try! Do you have any idea what you want it to look like, colors, icons, etc.? Is there any object in particular that you want to use? Or would you rather just have the words in the avatar? Think about what you want and send me an email with your thoughts, Then I can work on some designs and we can go from there!

i love southwest flavors and dishes that don’t require too many pots and pans to prepare (since I don’t have a dishwasher – eek!) This looks great and what fab cookbooks you got for the holidays!
