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


    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

    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


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


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

    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

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