Tamale Pie

2 1/2 pounds lean ground chuck
1 sweet onion, chopped up fine
1 green pepper, chopped
2 (14 1/2 oz) cans diced tomatoes
3 tsp chili powder
2 tsp salt
2 (7 oz) packages corn bread mix
1 (15 1/4 oz) can corn
2/3 cup milk
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
your favorite salsa


Brown ground chuck with onion & green pepper, drain well.
Add tomatoes, chili powder & salt. Simmer for about 10 minutes.

Pour into a 4 quart casserole dish.

In a seperate bowl, stir together the corn bread mix, corn and milk just until moist.
Spoon over the meat mixture then smooth out and then sprinkle with shredded cheese.

Bake uncovered at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.

Just A Note…

Don’t use finely shredded cheese. You can use up to 3 cups of cheese for topping if you like more cheese. I use a mild cheddar cheese but I’m sure a mexican blend or a spicier cheese would be good too.

Some like using their favorite salsa on this also.
