Cornbread Taco Bake

This Cornbread Taco Bake is an easy weeknight dinner that is full of flavor. This simple casserole recipe uses a cornbread muffin mix, peppers, rotisserie chicken, corn, beans, french fried onions, cheese and seasonings to make it a meal everyone will love!

This Cornbread Taco Bake is one of the few recipes I make that no one in my family complains about!  I love the simplicity of a casserole and my family loves the flavor of tacos, so this recipe is definitely a winner in our book.

Our friend Trish from Mom on Timeout has just released a cookbook called 100 Creative Ways to Use Rotisserie Chicken and it is amazing!

After bookmarking pretty much every recipe in the book, I decided to start with this Cornbread Taco Bake and I’m so glad I did.  My family loves taco casserole and this was a fun twist on one of our favorites.

If you are like me, you don’t have a lot of time to spend when it comes to making dinner.  I love using rotisserie chicken as a shortcut rather than cooking chicken myself.

Some of my favorite recipes to use rotisserie chicken in are our Baked Chicken Ranch Taquitos, Creamy Rotisserie Chicken Enchiladas and our Easy Chicken and Noodle Casserole.

My deli even has shredded rotisserie chicken which is a total lifesaver on busy nights.

The filling of this easy taco casserole is so delicious and is made using canned goods you probably already have in your pantry, along with the rotisserie chicken, then topped with a tasty cornbread topping.

How to make Cornbread Taco Bake:

This Cornbread Taco Bake is a simple casserole that can be made from start to finish in 30 minutes.

Start by preheating your oven to 400 degrees F then spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.

Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat, add bell pepper and saute for 2-3 minutes.

Add shredded or diced rotisserie chicken, water, taco seasoning, corn, beans and tomato sauce to the skillet and cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.  Remove from heat and set aside.

Prepare the corn muffin mix according to the package directions and stir half of the French fried onions into the batter.

Pour the chicken mixture into your prepared pan and spread the cornbread mixture on top.

Bake for 20 minutes, or until the cornbread is golden brown.  Top the casserole with the remaining onions and cheddar cheese and bake for an additional 5 minutes until the cheese has melted.

Remove the casserole from the oven and let cool for a few minutes before serving.

  1. Who dictates the definition of this space? Who defines recipe? Seriously, these type recipes are a great fit to getting the family around the dinner table which can be a big task at times. My hat is off to the ingenuity of piecing these flavors together for a family friendly meal.
