My kids love nachos but it isn’t a substantial meal. I’ve found they like this just as much but it is much more filling. It can be modified to be healthier by using ground turkey and fat-free/low fat cheese and sour cream.
1 package (8 1/2 oz) corn bread / muffin mix
1/3 cup milk
3 cups cooked taco seasoned meat
1 can black beans
1 cup (8 oz) sour cream, light
1 cup colby jack, cheddar or mexican cheese, shredded and divided
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1 medium tomato, chopped
1 cup shredded lettuce
1 can sliced olives (optional, I didn’t use)
In a large bowl, combine the corn bread, egg and milk until blended. Spread into an 8 x 8 pan sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.
Combine taco meat and beans, spread over corn bread.
Combine sour cream, 3/4 cup cheese and onion. Spread over meat mixture.
Bake for 20 – 25 minutes longer or until heated through and cheese is melted.
Sprinkle with tomato, lettuce and remaining 1/4 cup of cheese.
