Cornbread Taco Muffins

July Recipe
What do you get when you combine cornbread with taco night? Kid-approved taco muffins! What’s not to love? Our newest Grow Fit-approved recipe puts a fun spin on tacos by layering in another favorite that usually shows up on chili night. When you combine the two—the result is an adorable presentation of flavors that might make cupcake lovers do a double-take.

The future chefs and beloved bakers in your home will be eager to help mix up this simple, savory recipe and even more excited to dig in at the dinner table. It’s quick, yummy, and fun! You’ll need:

  • 1 pkg corn muffin mix (plus preparation add-ins, such as egg/milk)
  • 3 cups prepared, seasoned taco meat (ground turkey suggested)
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt or sour cream
  • ½ to 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Let’s get started! Begin by preparing your muffin pan using individual liners. You’ll be making 8 to 12, depending on the mix you choose.

Preheat the oven according to the directions on your corn muffin mix and prepare, as directed.

Add a large scoop of mix into each liner, filling less than half full. Add 2 Tbsp. of taco meat and a sprinkle of cheese to each, then top with another scoop of muffin mix. Repeat layers, if able.

Bake as directed (Ex: 15 to 20 minutes). Remove when done and let cool.

Top each taco muffin with a dollop of plain yogurt or sour cream. If you have a helper in the kitchen, let your child spread it around like you would with frosting on a cupcake.

Sprinkle the top with any remaining cheese and add a dash of salt and pepper, to taste.
