    justcallmetoni's Note:

    I love tamale pie but as a solo chef rarely make it. Found this recipe to be the perfect solution and it will easily double for larger families. The tamale topping on this is light and fluffy and complements the hearty beef filling underneath.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. 2
      In a non stick skillet, brown the ground beef and break it apart using a spoon. Add the onions and green peppers and garlic. Once the meat is cooked, drain off any excess fat. Alternately, transfer the contents of the pan to a plate lined with two paper towels, wipe skillet and return beef to pan.
    3. 3
      After draining excess fat using either method, add the tomatoes, corn, chili powder and 1/2 tablespoon of cornmeal. Bring the mixture to a simmer. Transfer to a one quart casserole.
    4. 4
      Place the milk, cornmeal and salt in a small saucepan and bring to a light boil. Reduce to a simmer and stir frequently until thickened. Alternately, you can cook the ingredients in a microwave and cook for 2 and 1/2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds.
    5. 5
      In a small bowl beat the egg whites by hand until foamy. Slowly add in the cornmeal, stirring to make sure it does not scramble the egg. Add the soy cheese/cheese if using.
    6. 6
      Top the casserole filling with the cornmeal mush.
    7. 7
      Bake for 25 to 30 minutes the top should be puffed and lightly browned.

      Really excellent!! We used taco seasoning to give it flavor (it is bland without something extra). I tripled the recipe so we could have leftovers, but there were none!

      My husband and I are both doing the WW core program, and I thought this would be a great recipe to try. The filling was good, next time I think I would thicken it alittle, and perhaps I didn't cook it in the oven long enough, because the topping was still alittle soggy or mushy. However, my 18 month old daughter loved the topping. It's a keeper, it's hard finding good core recipes.

      This was great for the 2 of us. I used one 4 oz ground sirloin burger and a vegetable combo of corn and black beans. I will increase the amount of chili powder next time. In place of corn meal, I used polenta. Served this with a tossed salad.
