Tamale Casserole

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef, browned (about 3 3/4 cups cooked)
  • 1 package taco seasoning mix
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 (12 ounce) can whole-kernel corn, drained
  • 1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chiles (optional)
  • 1 (8 1/2 ounce) package corn muffin mix (or two 6 1/2 ounce packages)
  • Grated Cheddar cheese for garnish

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Drain browned ground beef well and place in a large skillet.
  3. Over medium-high heat, stir in taco seasoning mix, water, tomato sauce, corn and chiles, if desired. Simmer for 3 minutes, then pour into a 2-quart casserole.
  4. Prepare corn muffin mix in a medium bowl according to package directions. Spoon corn muffin mixture around outer edge of casserole. (If using two 6 1/2 ounce packages, you'll have enough to cover top.)
  5. Bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes.
  6. Sprinkle cornbread with grated Cheddar cheese and return to oven for 2 to 3 more minutes, until cheese melts.

Makes 6 servings.
