Corn Bread Taco Pizza

Welcome to my first food blog post! Tonight I made corn bread taco pizza. The recipe came from my sister Sheri out of our family's cookbook. Of course I did change a couple things to adapt it to what I had on hand.

Ingredients you need:
1 box of corn muffin mix
1 egg (for the mix)
1 lb ground beef
1 packet of taco seasoning  (I used my homemade taco seasoning and 2/3 cup of water)
2 cups of cheddar cheese (I used a mexican blend of cheese)
1 cup of lettuce shredded
1/3 cup of petite diced tomatoes
Taco Sauce (optional, I only used it as a drizzle on top)
Sour Cream (optional, I had it in the picture but we never used it)

Prepare corn muffin mix as directed on package.
Pour it into a 12" pizza dish. I used a 9.5" pie dish and it worked well.
Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes. My 9.5" took a little longer.
Brown ground beef and drain the grease.
Add taco seasoning as directed on package. I put 2/3 cup of water in with my 2 tbsp of taco seasoning.
Top corn bread with 1 cup of cheese.
Pour the ground beef over top
Put the remaining cheese on top of that

Put the dish back into the oven for about 4 minutes (to melt the cheese)
Top with tomatoes and lettuce then drizzle taco sauce over the top

Here is the finished product!



  1. So.... I'm guessing you liked the recipe, since it was a family recipe, but you don't say for sure..... is there anything you would change next time you made it to make it "better"?

    1. It was the first time I tried it despite it being in our family cookbook but yes, we loved it! I don't think I would change anything as far as our tastes go. Some people might enjoy different taco toppings like olives or onions but I'm not big on those. I did drain off some of the water that I added to the taco seasoning so it wasn't too mushy though.
