Back to school season is always hectic, and Country Crock wants to make your life in the kitchen as seamless and easy as possible. The Mexican Beef & Corn Casserole is the quick and delicious go-to meal to whip up for the hectic school & work week.

Country Crock sent me some products and ingredients as inspiration to put my own spin on a recipe they provided.

Mexicorn and Black Beans

Calaphon Twill Thumb Mitt & Kitchen Aid Gourmet Short Turner

Cuisinart Box Grater

and of course some Country Crock.

I don’t make a lot of Tex-Mex type food in our home because my family isn’t overly keen on the flavors, so I made this recipe my way, to create a casserole that was all my own.

  1. I would add some toppings such as chopped tomatoes, olives, some guacamole. This sounds like a really yummy recipe that I will have to try this week. Thank you for sharing!

  2. I love your recipe, I think to make it my own I would after it is cooked top with lettuce, tomato black olives some guacamole and sour cream and make it a Taco bake – I also think instead of the pasta sauce, I would use canned tomatoes with Cajun spices in them, YUMMY

  3. This recipe looks delicious. I'd add a topping of sliced black and green olives, sliced jalapenos, and chopped red onion!

  4. I might try it with ground turkey and add black olives as well as some fresh avocado on top.

  5. I would be lucky to follow the instructions of this meal. I'd have to stick to the script

  6. I'd skip the olives, add some chili and cumin spices, and put some bisquit dough on top.

  7. I would use red beans not the black beans I would
    use some frozen corn that I froze this year. I would
    add black olives and taco cheese

  8. I would add peppers of some kind, and use red beans instead of black, and monterey jack cheese instead of or in addition to cheddar.

  9. I would make the meal vegetarian, probably with the use of a beef substitute. I might add some cilantro and fresh avocado to garnish as well

  10. I would use ground turkey, use salsa instead of pasta sauce and serve it over chopped romaine lettuse like a taco salad.
    I would also top it with sour cream, chopped avocado and some baked tortilla strips…yum,yum,yum!

  11. I would use it for a taco salad topping. Have the chips, lettuce, tomatoes, etc… It sounds delicious. Thanks.

  12. Please tell me how you'd make this recipe your own.

    well?…ill call it the Kelly special noon time clusterbake

  13. I would add tomatoes and leave out the Worcestershire sauce and perhaps add a little hot sauce.

  14. Replace the pasta sauce with sirracha sauce
    Top it with a mix of minced cilantro,scallions and diced tomato.
    finish it off with a drizzle of quacamole sauce

  15. I think I would make it more "saucy" and more like chili… or add a cornbread topping.

  16. I would use turkey instead of beef. I would add fresh tomatoes, eggplant, zuchinni, yellow squash & I would remove the beans.

  17. I would take out the mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and the pasta sauce.
    I would substitute fire roasted tomatoes, cumin and fresh coriander, garlic, onions and jalapenos.

  18. I would add some peppers instead of the black beans and maybe onions instead of the corn and definitely add some cheese.

  19. In summer I'd add diced zucchini to the corn/beans mix, and probably swap out a spicy tomato sauce for the pasta sauce.

  20. we don't like spicy so I would sway the mexican corn for just plain corn and try it with pinto beans instead of black beans.

  21. I would add in some beef instead of the chicken and possibly a little taco seasoning and salsa!

  22. I would substitute the ground beef for turkey, and on top I would use corn chips and toast them a little then put the cheese on top of them.

  23. To make this my own, I would serve it on top of corn bread and add some guac and olives.

  24. I would bake this according to directions and just before serving I would add Chili-cheese corn chips . I think this would be the icing on the cake.

  25. I'd make my own taco seasoning, one with lots of cumin. Also, I'd probably serve Mexican rice with it

  26. I would add more cheese, I love cheese, and add maybe some rotel or a little peppers in it to give it a little more bite. My mother loves spicy food.

  27. I would keep everything the same except for three things:I would swap out the black beans for red kidney beans,would triple the amount of cheese,and swap out the mexicorn for regular corn.

  28. I would make it my own by adding diced bell peppers, homemade taco seasoning, and using shredded chicken instead of beef!

  29. I would use the same ingredients, I would just use the healthy version of each ingredient.

  30. I would add some cilantro & also switch out the low fat cheddar for Chihuahua cheese.

  31. I'd probably make the sauce myself and add a bunch of fresh veggies like peppers & tomatoes.

  32. i would put mexican cheese instead of cheddar , pinto beans instead of black beans

  33. I would add diced green chiles and black olives and then top with some guacamole and salsa! YUM!
