Make-Ahead Tamale Pie
Make-Ahead Tamale Pie
2 lb. lean ground beef
2 medium onions peeled and chopped
2 (16- oz.) jars Herdez Salsa Casera (or favorite brand)
1 (15.25- oz.) can corn drained
1 (15- oz.) can black beans rinsed and drained
1 (3.8- oz.) can sliced ripe olives drained
2 envelopes taco seasoning mix
2 (8.5- oz.) boxes corn muffin mix
1 cup milk
1/2 cup cornmeal
2 eggs
1-1/2 cups Mexican blend cheese shredded
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 50 minutes
Reheat time: 45 to 50 minutes (thawed)

Preheat oven to 375°F. Brown beef in a large pot
until no longer pink; drain grease. Add onions and
cook over medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring
occasionally. Add salsa, corn, beans, olives and
taco seasoning mix. Bring to a boil; reduce heat
and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes. Remove
from heat and carefully spoon into 3 foil pie pans;
set aside. In a medium bowl, stir together muffin
mix, milk, cornmeal and eggs, stirring just until
combined. Let stand for 3 to 4 minutes, then
carefully spread 1/3 of the mixture over the top of
each pie, leaving a 1-inch border around the
edge. Bake for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese
and bake for 10 minutes more. The pie is ready to
eat now or, if desired, let cool, then cover and
freeze. To reheat, thaw overnight in the
refrigerator. Preheat oven to 375°F. Bake loosely
covered with foil for about 45 to 50 minutes or
until heated through.

Makes 3 pies, 6 to 8 servings each.
