Tamale Pie

Ok, I apologize, I'm not a food photographer. The above looks horrible. But trust me, this stuff is good. Have I ever lied to you??

TAMALE PIE

Filling:
2 cups browned ground beef
1t. chili powder (I used more)
1t. cumin (again more)
1/4 t. salt
1 (16 oz.) jar thick and chunky salsa
1/2 each of a red and green bell pepper, chopped

Cornbread:
1 & 1/2 cups flour
1 cup yellow cornmeal
1/3 cup sugar
1T. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1 & 1/4 cup milk
2 eggs
1/4 cup veg oil
4 ozs. shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 375.
Grease a bundt cake pan.
In a skillet, brown the ground beef. Add seasonings. Stir in salsa. Cook over med-low heat for 5 minutes. Meanwhile sprinkle chopped bell pepper in the bottom of the bundt pan.
In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients for cornbread (flour through salt). Add milk, eggs, and oil. Stir until moistened. Stir in cheese.
Spread 1/2 of the cornbread batter evenly over the peppers in the pan. Top with meat filling, then remaining batter. Spread evenly.
Bake 35-40 min. or until top is lightly browned. Loosen with a spatula. Invert onto a serving plate. Serve with sour cream.

sounds (and looks) yummy! Is it good as leftovers? I can see myself eating for lunch at work!

I got another heart attack just looking at it.

Beth - makes great leftovers.
Monkey - it isn't all that full of fat, in fact you could probably use turkey instead of hamburger. And egg sub instead of eggs.

Yummy - that sounds delicious (and not too crazy hard, like I could actually make it or something...or not).

I'm a horrible cook.

Yum. Can you just come over and make it for me?

Shan said...

Yum! I have never heard of making this kind of dish in a Bundt pan! I will have to try it. (I have a similar recipe made in a regular casserole dish or pie pan.)

The bundt pan really sets you apart from ordinary cooks!

I went to culinary school to learn how to make wonderful, complicated meals that people would ooh and aahh at.

And then I look at this recipe and think: "That's what I really want to make!"

Looks fantastic! I'm making that!

Well, I made this last night: Fantastic! Thank you so much. This is definitely going "into rotation".
