Tamale Pie 

I made this the other night for my husband since he’d never had it before and it was a hit! Delicious! 

Ingredients: 

Cornbread: 

– 1/2 cup cornmeal 

– 2/3 cup flour 

– 3 tbsp. sugar 

– 1 tbsp. baking powder 

– 1/4 tsp. salt 

– 3-4 tbsp. olive oil 

– 1/3 cup milk 

– 1 egg 

– 1 small can of diced green chiles 

– 1 can of corn 

Meat: 

– 1 pound ground beef 

– 1 tsp. cumin 

– 1 tsp. chili powder 

– 1/4 tsp. salt 

– 1/4 tsp. pepper 

Tamale Pie: 

– 1 1/4 cup enchilada sauce 

– 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese 

Sour cream, Salsa, Olives, Etc for topping 

Directions: 

Preheat oven to 400F. 

Whisk together the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the oil until soft crumbles form. Whisk in the milk and egg. Gently fold in chiles and corn. Pour into a greased 9x 13-inch pan . Bake for about 20 minutes, or until the toothpick passes the toothpick test. 

While the cornbread is baking, make the meat sauce. Brown the ground beef, drain, and mix in the seasonings. 

Remove the cornbread from the oven, and reduce the temperature to 350F. Poke holes in the cornbread with a fork and pour the enchilada sauce over it. Top with the ground beef and shredded cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake for another 7-8 minutes or until cheese begins to brown. 

 Let cool for about 10 minutes and top with your favorite toppings.
