Dining with Dan: Green Corn Tamale Pie

Recipe: Green Corn Tamale Pie


1 pound ground beef
1 bell pepper
1 large yellow onion
1/2 package taco seasoning
2-3 tbsp chopped garlic
1 14-ounce can chopped tomatoes
2/3 cup milk (for muffin mix)
2 eggs (for muffin mix)
1 14-ounce can of corn
2 8½ ounce packages of corn muffin mix
2 4 ounce cans of chopped green chilis
Grated sharp cheddar cheese



Preheat oven to 375-400 degrees (depends on oven).
Chop up the onion and the bell pepper.
Crumble up the ground beef and brown it over medium-high heat until it is cooked (about ten minutes). Drain off excess oil.
Stir in onion, bell pepper, tomatoes, garlic and half-package of taco seasoning. Simmer over low heat for 10 minutes or so.
In a large mixing bowl, prepare the corn muffin mix according to directions on package.
Drain the corn, then stir the corn and green chilis into the corn muffin mix.
In a 9” by 13” ungreased pan, spread the burger mix on the bottom. Then pour the corn muffin mix over the top.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until done. Sprinkle the top with grated cheddar cheese near the end of the baking time.
Cool then cut.
Serve and enjoy!
