Directions See How It's Made
- Prehaet oven to 400°F In a large skillet (cast iron or other oven safe skillet will go from stove top to oven), heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and bell pepper; cook until softened. Add Chili Powder and Cumin; cook about 1 minute more.
- Add ground beef and cook through.
- Stir in tomato sauce, corn, rice, and salsa; cook until heated through. Spoon meat mixture into a 10 inch pie plate (or leave in cast iron skillet or other oven safe skillet).
- In a mixing bowl, combine muffin mix, egg and milk; spoon batter into plastic bag and snip one corner. Pipe (as with decorating a cake) batter onto meat mixture. You can be creative as to the shape you make the batter.
- Sprinkle the batter shape with chopped chives. Bake about 25 minutes, or until batter is browned and meat mixture is heated through.
