Cornbread Tamale Pie

'LilDude is very proud of this recipe. While we were waiting for Anakin to finish his guitar lesson, 'LilDude spotted this recipe in a magazine in the waiting area and asked if we could make it. This is now a family favorite!

Saute for 10 minutes:

1 lb ground beef
1 onion, chopped

Stir in:

1-2 c. canned black beans
1 c. or more corn (I use frozen)
1 c. tomato sauce (I use frozen, homemade from Simply in Season...YUM!)
1 c. water
1 T. chili powder
1/2 t. cumin
1 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper

Simmer 15 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside. Preheat oven to 425.


3/4 c. cornmeal
1 T. flour (we use rice flour)
1 T. sugar
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt

Whisk separately:

1 egg
1/3 c. milk (we use rice milk)
1 T. oil

Pour egg mixture over cornmeal mixture and combine to make a batter.

Spread meat mixture into greased 3 qt. dish and cover with cornbread batter. Bake, uncovered, til cornbread browns, 20-25 minutes.

Assuming you plan your meals in advance, what is your method?
