Cornbread Tamale Pie

Ingredients
  

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 med. onion chopped
  • 1 cup black beans drained
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 3/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1 Tbsp. flour
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil

Instructions
 

  • Saute beef and onion in large skillet until browned. Stir in black beans, corn, tomato sauce, 1 cup water (or beef broth), chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease 3 quart casserole dish. Mix cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, egg, milk, and oil until well blended. Spread meat mixture into casserole dish. Cover with cornbread topping. The topping will disappear into meat mixture but rises during baking to form layer of cornbread. Bake uncovered until cornbread is brown about 20-25 minutes.
