Tamale Pie

Need a recipe for dinner that is quick, easy, and makes great leftovers?  Give this Tamale Pie a try!

The friend who gave this recipe to me said it was from Pampered Chef. 

1 lb. Ground Beef (I use Turkey)
1 1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder
7 1/2 oz. Canned Tomatoes, crushed and drained 
          (or Rotel for more heat)
16 oz. Can Refried Beans
16 oz. Picante Sauce
8 3/4 oz. Can Whole Kernel Corn
1/2 C. Green Onions, sliced
1/4 tsp. Cumin
16 oz. Cornbread Mix, prepared (I have substituted Greek Yogurt for the eggs in the mix
           with very good results)
1 C. Shredded Cheese

In a large skillet, brown meat with garlic powder; drain.  In a large bowl, mix meat with remaining ingredients, except cornbread mix and cheese.

Spoon the meat mixture evenly into bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish.  Fold cheese into prepared cornbread mix.  Top meat with cornbread and cheese mix.  Bake at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes.  Let stand 10 minutes.  Serve with salsa and sour cream.

Wasn't that simple?  
You'll be surprised how easy, yet tasty this Tamale Pie is.

Thanks for stopping by the Tub!
