Easy Tamale Casserole

Recipe by  

"My mom liked to make the Hamburger Helper® version of this recipe. When I moved to another state, I could not find it, so I came up with this. Memories of home. My hubby likes for me to spice this up sometimes, so I will use a 14-ounce can of tomatoes and green chiles in it or just use a Mexican-style cornbread mix sometimes."

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease. Season beef with salt and pepper.
  3. Stir onion into the ground beef; cook and stir for 1 minute and immediately remove skillet from heat.
  4. Stir pinto beans and crushed tomatoes into the beef mixture.
  5. Beat cream-style corn, cornbread mix, and egg together in a bowl until smooth; spread over the top of the ground beef mixture in the skillet. Sprinkle Cheddar cheese over the corn mixture.
  6. Bake in preheated oven until the cheese is melted and the cornbread is set in the middle, about 25 minutes.

I added chili powder and cumin to the meat and onion mixture (and cooked the beef and onions together). I had to put mine in a 9x13 pan since my cast iron was not large enough to hold everything. Overall this was a good recipe - easy to adjust the spiciness / seasonings to your tastes. We used Jiffy cornbread mix and found the sweetness of the mixture was a little bit of an odd combination with the rest of the flavors in the dish - so I would just use one without so much sugar in the mix next time I think.
