Tamale Pie

Tamale pie is a great recipe to stretch meat and fill hungry tummies.  It is simple to make and uses ingredients I usually  have on hand.  When I had several teenagers at home I made this casserole quite a bit.

If you like your meals a bit spicier, you might enjoy some green chili's in the filling or mixed into the cornbread topping!

Tamale Pie


1 lb hamburger (I prefer 90/10)
1 medium onion, diced
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
3 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. salt.
pepper to taste
1 15 oz. can petite diced tomatoes 
1 15 oz. can of black olives, sliced
1 cup frozen corn or 1 15 oz. can corn, drained

Brown hamburger and onion until onion is translucent.  Add the remaining ingredients and warm through.  Place in a greased 9x13 pan or other casserole dish.


1 C. yellow corn meal
1 C. flour
1 T. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 C. milk
1/3 C. oil
1 egg

Mix all together until well blended.  Pour over meat mixture in pan.   Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.  

Sprinkle with 1 1/2 C. shredded cheddar cheese.   Return to oven and bake another 15 minutes until topping is set and cheese is melted.

Serve hot.

Joy's Notes:   You can save time and either buy sliced olives (which are more expensive) OR leave the olives whole.
