Tamale Pie

Ingredients

Crust:

• 1 cup cornmeal
• 1 tsp. sugar
• 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
• 1/3 cup milk
• 1 large egg
• 2 tsp. vegetable oil

Filling:

• 1/2 lb. ground beef or turkey
• 1/2 cup green pepper, chopped
• 1/2 cup onion, chopped
• 8 oz. can tomato sauce
• 1 cup whole kernel corn, drained
• 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
• 1 tsp. jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
• 1 tsp. chili powder
• 1 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
• 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
• 1 tsp. garlic, minced
• sour cream
• salsa

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine the cornmeal and sugar. Stir in 1 cup cheese, milk, egg and oil. Stir just until moistened. Press the mixture on the bottom and up the sides of a 9″ pie plate that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. In a 10″ skillet, cook the ground meat, green peppers, onions, garlic, and jalapeno pepper over medium heat until the meat is no longer pink. Drain. Stir in the tomato sauce, corn, chili powder, cumin, and cayenne pepper. Spoon the mixture into the cornmeal crust.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top. Return to the oven and bake until the cheese melts.
  5. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Serve with sour cream and salsa, if desired.
