*** This Recipe Was Created by My Cousin Jamie***
Taco Tuesday’s is a thing at our house. We love an excellent Tex-Mex dish, and what better way to celebrate than on a Tuesday to break up the week. I was on the hunt for a new and creative meal, and my cousin Jamie shared her cornbread taco pie recipe, and I instantly knew it was a must make! Grab a boxed cornbread, we use one that has jalapeno to add some kick, but you are welcome to use any brand or kind you like. Then on top goes perfectly cooked taco meat that you can layer on any taco condiments you want.
Tex Mex Instant Pot Cornbread Taco Pie
In our home, we love to mix it up with the toppings. I generally use what I have on hand and create a tasty dish that we all can enjoy. I like to add a dollop of sour cream for that tang, and it can tame down the jalapenos in the cornbread.

How To Make Cornbread Taco Pie
Truthfully you guys, the process is a breeze. You start by cooking that ground beef until it is perfectly cooked, toss in your taco seasoning and let it marinade for a few minutes. Pour the meat mixture into your pan that you will be putting into your Instant Pot. Next, in a separate pan, mix up your cornbread according to the package. Pour over the meat mixture, and cook. Once it is done, pull it out and flip it over, so the meat mixture is on top. Slice, and top with your favorite taco condiments!
Super simple to make, and the cornbread pairs well with the taco meat. I think once you make this recipe, you will keep coming back to make it again and again. It was an instant favorite in our home!
