This Easy Mexican Cornbread Casserole is Low Carb, Gluten Free, Grain Free and one of the most comforting and satisfying meals you can make for your family!
With a layer of cornbread as the base, a mixture of spices with organic grass fed ground beef and another layer of cheesy cornbread on top, this scrumptious meal is not only a family friendly one but simple enough for any busy weeknight! It’s also easy to make ahead, freeze and thaw for when life gets crazy and you need dinner on the table fast.
When I think of comfort foods, it always comes back to some form of bread for me. I am an Italian and grew up on carbs, so when I began eating low carb that was certainly something I missed. But it’s also made me work really hard to make over traditional recipes and turn them into low carb wonders, like my Grain Free Low Carb Cornbread.
Organic Grass-Fed Ground Beef is always on the menu for my family on a weekly basis. I love making comforting meals using ground beef, like my Bacon Cheeseburger Cauliflower Casserole, and my Bacon Cheeseburger Calzone made with my Fathead Low Carb Dough!
Recently, ButcherBox sent me a variety box of their 100% Organic Meats to try. Butcher Box is a monthly subscription which works out to be less than $6.00 a meal. Each box comes with 8-11 pounds of meat which is about 20-28 meals. The best part is that it’s shipped right to your door and delivery is free.
You can choose to customize your box with whatever meats you prefer. I love having variety so the standard box was perfect for us. It came with 100% Grass Fed Ground Beef, Top Sirloin, New York Strip, Ribeye, Free Range Organic Chicken Breasts, Heritage Breed Pork Chops, and Bacon.
Right now ButcherBox is having a Special Filet Mignon Day!
Starting Wednesday, October 25th – Tuesday, October, 31st in which New customers get 2 free 6oz Filet Mignon steaks and $11 off their 1st ButcherBox!
Filet Mignons are one of the most tender, well-known, and expensive steaks. ButcherBox Filet Mignons are 100% grass-fed and grass-finished and raised free from antibiotics and hormones.

I highly recommend trying Butcherbox if you’re a busy family like me especially concerned about the meat you and your family are eating and that it doesn’t containing hormones. It’s not only affordable, it’s convenient too!
