Cajun Beef Casserole
1 pkg. (8 1/2 oz) corn bread/muffin mix (I used Bob’s redmill GF mix)
1 lb ground beef
2 cans (14 1/2 oz each) diced tomatoes, drained
2 cups frozen mixed vegetables, thawed
1 can (6 oz. ) tomato paste
1 to 2 tsp. cajun seasoning (I added more for a kick)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 green onions, thinly sliced
prepare corn bread batter according to package directions. Spread into a greased 11×7 in baking dish. Cook beef in a large skilled over medium heat until meat is no long pink. Drain if necessary. I used really lean beef, so there was not much juice left in the pan. Add tomatoes, vegetables, tomato paste and seasoning. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer for 5 minutes. Pour on top of the corn bread crust. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Sprinkle with green onions once the casserole comes out of the oven.
Serve and enjoy! I’m off to enjoy the rest of my evening and watch the bachelor 🙂
