Taco Noodle Hot Dish is my recipe of the day with the blogging group Baking Bloggers. We get together monthly to post recipes on various  topics.

For August we are sharing recipes using  sweet corn in a baked dish.

I had been feeling in  need of some good old-fashioned comfort food so went with making a macaroni casserole, or hot dish.

Instead  of the usual flavors I decided to spice it up with taco  seasoning, tomatoes, corn, black beans and cheese. It is perfectly  comforting  and hit the spot.

I imagine this will go over perfect with the  preteen and teenager kids, so if you have a pack  of those or grandkids coming over, go for it.

  1. Ok, this is replacing tomorrow’s Taco Tuesday recipe on the menu. I have a couple of ears waiting to be used and the Teen is going to love this dish.

    • Remember to use the Bundt pan. Stick the end of the ear in the hole to steady the corn and the pan catches all the kernels as you cut them off. My stems snapped off, but I trimmed the tips and then stuck the other end into the hole, also works.
