Crockpot Tamale Pie
Following a day full of meetings, I needed something that would cook itself. This recipe is fast and tasty, and will be a staple for reliable, last-minute dinners.
Cornbread topping ingredients:
3/4 cup cornmeal
1 1/4 cup flour
1 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 lb ground meat, browned and de-greased on paper towel (I used ground
1 can drained and rinsed black beans
1 can fire roasted tomatoes
1 can drained corn
1 T cumin
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 cup green onion
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Note: You can also clean out the fridge and add leftover spinach, beans, cooked carrots, etc.
Spray your crockpot with cooking spray. Dump in the filling ingredients and
stir well to distribute the spices. In a separate bowl, mix together the
cornbread topping, then pour evenly over the filling. Cover and cook on low for 4-7 hours or on high for 2-4.
