Great tamale pie recipe!
I just came up with this Southwestern recipe today! I had to taste it, of course, before posting it here, and I thought it was delicious. Can’t wait to try it out on the two grandkids who will be here soon! I cooked the whole tamale pie in my old black iron skillet, but you can use a casserole dish, if you prefer.
Holle’s Skillet Tamale Pie recipe
What you’ll need:
- 1 pound lean ground beef
- ½ cup chopped onions
- ½ cup diced red bell pepper
- ½ cup diced green bell pepper
- Garlic salt, to taste
- Chili powder, to taste
- 1 cup frozen whole kernel corn, thawed
- ½ – ¾ cups tomato sauce
- 1 cup shredded cheese
- 1 cup self-rising cornmeal
- ¾ cup milk
- 1 beaten egg
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- Salt and pepper, to taste
Directions: Brown beef in large iron skillet. When still pink, add onions and peppers. Drain off most – but not all- the liquid.
Stir in garlic salt, chili powder, corn, and tomato sauce. Sprinkle cheese on top.
In a bowl, mix together corn meal, milk, egg, sugar, and salt and pepper to form a thin batter. Pour over cheese in skillet.
Bake at 375 degrees for 35-40 minutes.
