Recipe of the Month

My sweet mother-in-law shared this one with me years ago. It’s a particular favorite of my hubby’s and very easy to make. Easy to double for a crowd too.

Tamale Pie

1 lbs ground beef (or ground turkey)

½ onion, diced

1 1-lb can diced tomatoes

1 ½ tsp chili powder

1 tsp salt

freshly ground pepper

2 small cans sliced olives (optional)

1 8-ounce can cream style corn

1 8-ounce box (Jiffy brand, if possible) corn bread mix

  • Preheat oven to 400

  • Brown meat and onion. Drain.

  • Add tomatoes, salt and pepper, and chili powder. Simmer 10 minutes then transfer meat mixture to an oven-safe dish (approx. 10 inches)

  • In a separate bowl, follow package directions for corn bread mix.

  • Add corn to cornbread mixture

  • Top meat mixture with corn bread mixture

  • Bake 30-35 minutes

**NOTE: I always add more seasoning than the recipe calls for (usually garlic powder or onion powder or cayenne if you like it spicy). Feel free to add whatever you want.
