Country Crock sent me a casserole kit last month and I created the Mediterranean Casserole. This month they sent another kit with a few ingredients with a recipe card for Mexican Beef & Corn Casserole to use as inspiration. My boys are huge fans of tacos and we eat them every which way. I figured a Taco Pie Casserole would be a huge hit! You can alter the ingredients to make it your own like I did. I took away the sour cream and added garlic and a few other spices to create a Taco Pie Casserole. Country Crock knows that Back to school season is always a very buys time for parents, and they want to help make your life as easy as possible. The Mexican Beef & Corn Casserole is the quick and delicious go-to meal which can be personalized for your hectic school & work week.
