One way to make a beef casserole is to season the beef with taco seasoning mix, salt and pepper. You can make it extra hot by adding half a teaspoon of cumin. Spread the ground beef evenly using a nine inch square casserole dish. Drain a fifteen ounce can of corn and layer this evenly on top of the ground beef. Make two cups of instant mashed potatoes and spread this on top of your mixture. Put one cup of grated cheddar cheese on top of your casserole mix. Sprinkle more taco seasoning on top and also add a small can of sliced jalapeno peppers. Bake at 375 degrees for one hour or until the meat juices run clear and you have a nutritious and filling dinner ready to eat.
