Okay so I know that this is the season when casseroles are OUT and veggies are in but you guyyyyyyyys. I just couldn’t help it with this one. Last week my stomach was feeling icky and all I wanted was something cheesy and comforting to, well, comfort me.
I also didn’t want to go to the store. Lazy blogger alert.
If you only knew how often I went to the store. Like, way too often. Especially with a crazy toddler. It’s just nonsense.
SO. I wanted something cheesy. Something comforting. Something delicious. This Beef Tamale Cornbread Pie completely hits all the marks.
This cornbread pie is actually a spin off my Chicken Tamale Cornbread Pie which I made years ago and absolutely love. This time, instead of using cornbread mix, I made my own cornbread mixture. Which really, you guys, is super simple. It’s just flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt. So easy.
So basically you semi-bake the cornbread mixture. Then, like you would do with a poke cake, you poke holes in it and then pour enchilada sauce over it, top it with beef and cheese, and bake her up until gooey and bubbling. It’s serious comfort food!
Okay, now I’ll be back later this week with a veggie-filled detox salad. Promise!
