On The Menu - Taco Pie

From Grandma Nancy's Kitchen

Easy, Peasy Taco Pie

"Nothing beats something warm from the oven during the winter months. And, when that something is as easy as this Taco Pie, you’ve got a winner that will keep the family coming back for more! A favorite of my eldest grandson, this pie can be seasoned from mild to spicy just by adjusting the amount of taco seasoning. Or, for the daring, adding some chopped jalapenos."

1 1⁄2 lbs ground beef, cooked and drained
1⁄4 cup of chopped onion
1 - 8 ounce can tomato sauce
1 - 15 ounce can whole kernel corn, drained
1⁄2 cup water
3 tablespoons taco seasoning (more or less to taste)
1 tablespoon chopped jalapeno (optional – very optional)
1 (8 ounce) package cornbread mix (such as Jiffy)
1⁄3 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese or 1⁄3 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese

Brown ground beef and onion until beef is thoroughly cooked. Drain off excess fat. Add tomato sauce, corn, water, and taco seasoning and stir to combine.
Spoon into a greased deep dish pie plate or a 2 ½ quart baking dish.
Prepare the corn bread according to the package directions. Pour over the beef mixture.
Bake uncovered at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until the cornbread is done.
Top with cheese and bake 5 more minutes to melt the cheese.
