Taco Salad

Photo(19) Oh. Mama.  I just whipped this thing up last night and it was awesome!  A couple years ago, I remember eating Paula Deen's Cornbread Salad (made by a friend) and it was so good!  Whoever thought of crumbling cornbread in a salad?!  Genius.  So I was trying to think of something that would have a little spice to help my sinus's drain and remembered this salad (which wasn't spicy at all now that I think about it, but does that really matter?). 

Super easy and cozy on a cold, wind-is-howling, winter's night….

Whip up a batch of Chi-Chi's Sweet Corn Cake mix (this package calls for a can of creamed corn–yum).  While that's baking, chop a half onion and throw it in a pan with your beef.  Finish the beef with taco seasoning.  While that's cooking, toss together a can of corn and rinsed black beans and then saute (you can add your own spices to this mix).  Once the corn is tender, add a can of (drained) diced tomatoes and toss. 

For serving…

Into a bowl put:  shredded lettuce and cilantro, crumbled cornbread, meat, veggies, and sour cream.  You could also add some cheese. Done.  Good!
