  • 1 can diced Mexican style tomatoes drained
  • 1 can chilies, drained
  • 1 cup chunky salsa verde
  • 1 package 8.5 oz corn muffin mix (Jiffy)
  • 1 cup cream-style corn

  • 1 ½ cup shredded Mexican cheese


  • Sauté meat, drain off fat, stir in tomatoes, salsa, chilies & olives and ½ cup of cheese.
  • Mix together muffin mix and cream corn, spread over top of casserole cook until bubbly
  • If edges start browning to fast just cover with foil then put the lid back on.
