New Recipe: Mexican Casserole

A few years ago, right after I got married I ran across a recipe that called for refried beans, ground beef, and Jiffy cornmeal mix.  I have since stopped getting Jiffy in an attempt to not eat so much processed food, and the recipe is also long gone.  I thought about corn pudding and that recipe and decided to smash them together for a more "one dish meal" approach.

Mexican Casserole

1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 envelope of your favorite taco seasoning mix (I use my own and will post the recipe at another time)
3/4 cup water
1 can of refried beans or 1 1/2 cups of your own
2 cans of cream style corn
1 cup of self rising cornmeal mix
2 eggs
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
 1/3 cup of sugar

Heat oven to 425.  Brown the ground beef and drain. Stir in taco seasoning and water.  Cook until most all the water is gone, but beef is still fairly moist. 
Spray nonstick spray in a 9 x 13 inch baking dish. Spread beans in the bottom of pan.  Spread cooked and seasoned ground beef over the beans. Set aside.
In another bowl, mix the remaining ingredients.  Pour over ground beef.
Bake for about 30 minutes, until the casserole is starting to brown and the corn pudding is set.

Serves 6 to 8
