Trim Tamale Pie

Submitted by: CHEF_MEG
Trim Tamale Pie

Introduction

We made over a church supper stand-by. Gone are the gobs of cheese and ground beef, but all the flavor remains. We made over a church supper stand-by. Gone are the gobs of cheese and ground beef, but all the flavor remains.
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    Filling:
    12 ounces cooked chicken breast, diced
    1 bell pepper, diced
    1 cup frozen corn
    1 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
    1 1/2 cups diced tomatoes
    2 tablespoons diced jalapeno
    1 teaspoon chili powder
    1 teaspoon ground cumin

    Cornbread:
    1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
    1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon chili powder
    pinch cayenne pepper
    2 tablespoons diced jalapeno
    1/2 cup frozen corn
    1/4 cup shredded reduced-fat sharp Cheddar cheese
    1/4 cup egg substitute
    1 1/4 cup low-fat buttermilk



Tips

Use the jalapeno cornbread recipe with the casserole or on its own!


Directions

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8 X 10 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

Combine all the ingredients for the filling, then pour into the baking dish and set aside.

Prepare the cornbread. Mix together the dry ingredients in a medium bowl, then add the wet ingredients and stir to combine.

Pour the cornbread batter evenly over chicken mixture. Bake 25-30 minutes, until the topping is lightly browned.

Remove from oven and allow to rest at room temperature for 5 minutes before serving.

Serving Size: Makes 6 one-cup servings.

    I use tortilla in place of the cornmeal mush. Simple and tasty. - 8/21/13

    FYI - The singular form is 'tamal' and the plural form 'tamales'. 'Tamale' doesn't exist as a proper word. - 8/21/13

    I added pinto beans, a can of green chilies and a combo can of corn, tomatoes and okra and a package of taco seasoning. Very good. - 11/10/12

    Definitely will become a regular on my menu. While my family felt it needed more salt... I disagreed. I will probably try Rotel instead of canned diced tomatoes next time. Agree it took longer than 30 minutes for the topping to cook... may use a little less buttermilk next time. - 9/10/13

    I made this tonight. It's OK. I baked for 30 minutes but should have left it in longer because it was runny. Maybe it will be better as leftovers. I left out the cumin and jalapenos but next time, I think I'll add a little jalapeno for a *little* bit of kick. - 8/29/13

    I am going to try this but going to remove the chicken and double up on the black beans, since my husband is allergic to chicken. Putting it on my menu plan for next week. sounds great. - 8/21/13

    Quick question- I do not have the size pan the recipe calls for (8x10). In fact, I don't think I've ever seen one! Would a 9x9 be okay? - 8/21/13

  • This recipe is super delicious from the first to the last byte. I substitutes the cheese for goat cheese and since I do not buy cow milk anymore, I mixed 1/4 of flax milk with 1 T of quark cheese and to 1 T of that in the second mixture.Sooooooooooooooo Good! Will make it often. - 8/21/13
