If you have not had the chance to pick up the new THM Cookbook from Pearl and Serene then I would definitely add it to my wish list for Christmas or your next birthday. I pre-ordered mine and was so thrilled when it came in I instantly started trying the recipes. You can find the cook book in all major book stores or you can order from Wal*Mart.com here.
In this recipe review of the Cornbread Crusted Mexican Pie, I don’t think I can brag enough to make you understand just how great this casserole is. It is easy and it makes a large batch so it is good for big families or a table of three with left overs for lunch. Oh ladies… let me tell you about those left overs, they are fabulous. I think it warms up tasting even better than it does at dinner. That is saying a lot coming from me since I am not a huge fan of left overs.
This casserole is full of flavor and has a great comfort food feel to it in my opinion. It kinda reminds me of a taco pot pie of sorts. I did change mine up a bit by switching out fire roasted tomatoes for the Rotel (little guy doesn’t like ANY heat) but other than that I stuck to the original recipe. It is going to be a family favorite here for sure. I serve mine with some buttered broccoli or big side salad for myself and hubby and a side of corn for my little man. This recipe is an S so keep your sides on the non-starchy side to stay in S territory.
Not only does this casserole make great dinners and lunches but I have now added it to my list of freezer meals since it freezes nicely. So my “busy mama” tip is that when you are cooking this casserole for your nightly dinner just make a double batch and freeze one to use on another busy night. If you are busy most days like this mom then you know the power of prepping ahead right? Right!! So the next time you are looking for a great dinner casserole or wanting to add a new item to your freezer meal rotation I highly recommend trying this recipe. I believe the ladies hit it out of the park with this one! If you are interested in future reviews please “Follow” my blog for updates when new reviews are posted.
