Stir the chili, water, picante sauce and corn in the skillet. Spoon the beef mixture into a 2-quart shallow baking dish.
Mix the corn muffin mix according to the package directions. Pour the batter over the beef mixture.
Bake for 20 minutes or until the topping is golden brown.
this is something like my grandma made
I just love Tamale pie. I added a half cup of whole olives to the beef mix and 1/3 cup of corn to the corn bread. It turned out amazing and alot like how I remember. I think there were crushed tomatos in my GM's and I might try that next time. Its always important to add s/p to taste to the beef after its browned. TASTE AS YOU COOK. YUM YUM.
The crust never got firm and was gritty.
Excellent Tex Mex dish for our cafeteria!
Recipe was very easy, which I added a can of Rotel's diced tomatoes with green chilis. I made it for our college cafeteria and it went over as a huge success, the students ask to have it back for another day!
Shortcut Tamale Pie
For quick and easy it's at the top. A Hint or two: use an iron skillet they go right from the stove top to the oven (Only one pan to clean.). Use "Mexi-Corn" vs whole kernel and definitely have some extra Pace in a bowl beside some grated cheese for an added topping when it comes out of the oven and before serving. Yum Yum. Might want to make a double batch this is good !
I've made this recipe and have to say that my whole family (yes even my 3 year old) loved it !! It's a nice change from meat and potatoes.
