Tamale Pie

Tamales meet casserole in this blast-from-the-past dish. Every time I make it I wonder why I don't make it more often.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb(s) ground beef
  • 1/2 cup(s) chopped onion
  • 1 clove(s) minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup(s) chopped green pepper
  • 1 can(s) corn, drained

  • 2 1/2 cup(s) water
  • 1/4 tsp(s) salt

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a large skillet, brown ground beef, onions and garlic; then drain the fat. Add peppers, corn, kidney beans, tomato sauce, olives, salsa and chili powder. Pour into a 10 x 10-inch greased baking dish.

In a medium sauce pan combine cornmeal, water and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, and continue cooking until it thickens slightly. Spoon cornmeal over ground beef mixture.
