Ingredients & Cooking

Ingredients:

Mexican-Style Beef Sausage
  • 1 recipe Mexican-Style Beef Sausage
  • 12 ounces frozen onion and pepper blend (diced or sliced), thawed, drained
  • 1/2 cup no-salt added canned diced tomatoes with green chilies
  • 1 package (8-1/2 ounces) cornbread mix
  • 1/3 cup 2% reduced-fat milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup frozen corn, thawed, drained
Topping (optional)
  • sour cream, diced seeded tomatoes, sliced green onions and honey

Cooking:

  1. Preheat oven according to directions on cornbread mix for cast-iron baking. Prepare Mexican-Style Beef Sausage.  Add onion and pepper mix and tomatoes; cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. 


    Mexican-Style Beef Sausage
    :  Combine 1 pound Ground Beef (93% or leaner), 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar, 1-1/2 teaspoons dried oregano leaves, 1-1/2 teaspoons smoked paprika, 1-1/2 teaspoons chili powder, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon chipotle chili powder in large mixing bowl mixing lightly but thoroughly.  Heat 9-inch cast iron skillet over medium heat until hot.  Add sausage mixture; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking into 1/2-inch crumbles and stirring occasionally.

  2. Cook's Tip:

    Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef.  Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.

  3. Meanwhile, prepare cornbread mix according to package directions, using milk and egg; fold corn into batter.  Quickly pour batter over sausage mixture in cast-iron skillet, completely covering sausage mixture.  Bake according to package directions or until cornbread is cooked through and golden brown.
