Whitey's Tamale Pie looked so good I have been wanting to give it a try. So, tonight for dinner I am throwing it all together. The only thing different I am doing is using Mom's cornbread recipe.




Preheated and browned the burger.


Added one can of tomatoes with juice one without.


Chopped up bell pepper, onion, and black olives.


I let Toot Toot (4 years old) use the old digital camera while I was cooking ...she took about 30 pics I really liked this one...cool huh!


Added chili powder and salt.


and a can of corn.




All mixed together.


I then added Mom's cornbread mix and it should be ready shortly. I hope it comes out ok! About 10 mins into the second phase of the cook.

Thanks corndog!




Done!




Plated with refried beans and chips.





Man was it tasty! Mrs Jeepdad and Mom liked it too. The girls not so much. I think next time I will add the onons and peppers when I'm browning the meat. To give them a little extra time cooking.

My tamale pie was a little soupy whereas whiteys is not in his posting. I wonder if I should have drained half of the second can of tomatoes too. Highly recommend you giving it a try you will not be disappointed. Thanks whitey!

Whitey’s Tamale Pie

Ingredients:
I pound ground beef
2 28-ounce cans tomatoes
1 16-ounce can pitted olives
1 can of corn drained
1 large bell pepper
1 large onion
3 tablespoons chili powder
3 teaspoons salt
3 tablespoons oil
corn bread mix (or mix from scratch, see recipe for corn bread)

Preparation:
While the Dutch oven is preheating, open the cans of tomatoes and olives. Drain one can of tomatoes. Slice the olives and peel and dice the onion. Dice the bell pepper.

When the oven is heated, add the oil. When the oil is heated to where it smokes lightly, add the ground beef and brown. Add the onions and peppers while browning the meat too.

Once meat is browned add the tomatoes, one can with juice and one without.. Add the olives, chili powder and salt. Cover and place oven on 12 coals. Let cook for 20 minutes.

While meat and vegetables are cooking, mix the corn bread according to package directions or make from scratch.

Open the lid of the oven and drop in the corn bread dough one spoonful at a time. Do not drop one spoonful onto another.

Put lid on oven and add 9 coals to the lid. Bake for 30 minutes. Test bread for doneness.

Great job on your tamale pie. I think i would like it a little soupy makes for some good soppin up cornbread. Your reflections picture is cool to, i really enjoy lookingl at pictures that turn out for a lack of word different. My kids are extremely fussy on the onions and peppers they dont like the crunch,(wont lie) i mostly like them overcooked also Laughing . Im having withdraws from my smoker and the DOs. URRRRR

wow that looks great !!!!!!!!!!!!! i gotta try that , looks like a good cold weather dinner .
i think if you want it less soupy ,just cook it longer to reduce the liquid,before you top it with the cornbread.

but i gotta try that !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks morick I like it soupy too. After looking at whiteys I thought I must have done something wrong. But like pafisher said I could cook it longer if I wanted less soup. I think I will keep it like it is...for sopping!

pafisher, thanks and good idea about cooking it longer. It is a great cold weather meal give it a try!

Thanks k.a.m., I really liked all the different flavors. Next time I will add some heat (peppers) or something to kick it up.

Whitey's Tamale Pie:
1/4 cup oil
2 lbs lean Ground beef
2 cups chopped onions
1 green bell pepper chopped
1 serrano pepper minced
8 oz tomatoe sauce
1 8oz can corn
1/4 cup chili powder
1 1/2 tspn salt
1 tbspn ground cumin
1 tbspn garlic powder
1 tbspn dried Mexican Oregano
2 packages Jiffy or pioneer corn bread mix Shocked (Unless You are Jeepdad)
1 small can of sliced olives
1/2 tspn of cayenne
Get the meat browned and drained.
Get the onions,pepper and chili going for 3-5 minutes,add the tomatoe sauce,corn,chili powder,salt,cumin,garlic and oregano.Let roll forabout 10 minutes..

Make Your cornbread mixed up You can but half the mix in the bottom and then spoon the meat mixture over it and finish by putting the rest of the C.B mixture over the meat..Then put the olives and the cayenne on top

I like to just put all the C.B mix right on top..The key of course is not to place to much heat on the lid..Run like 5-6 under and 10-12 on top..Just dont open the D.O to offten,but take a look after 10-15 minutes to makes sure You dont have to much heat on top

It has a pretty good zip to it,But it is real good beer drinking kindof zip..Enjoy

Whitey
