Whitey's Tamale Pie

1/4 cup oil
2 lbs lean Ground beef
2 cups chopped onions
1 green bell pepper chopped
1 serrano pepper minced
8 oz tomatoe sauce
1 8oz can corn
1/4 cup chili powder
1 1/2 tspn salt
1 tbspn ground cumin
1 tbspn garlic powder
1 tbspn dried Mexican Oregano
2 packages Jiffy or pioneer corn bread mix (Unless You are Jeepdad)
1 small can of sliced olives
1/2 tspn of cayenne

Get the meat browned and drained.

Get the onions,pepper and chili going for 3-5 minutes,add the tomatoe sauce,corn,chili powder,salt,cumin,garlic and oregano.Let roll for about 10 minutes..

Make Your cornbread mixed up You can put half the mix in the bottom and then spoon the meat mixture over it and finish by putting the rest of the C.B mixture over the meat..Then put the olives and the cayenne on top

I like to just put all the C.B mix right on top..The key of course is not to place to much heat on the lid..Run like 5-6 under and 10-12 on top..Just dont open the D.O to offten,but take a look after 10-15 minutes to makes sure You dont have to much heat on top

It has a pretty good zip to it,But it is real good beer drinking kind of zip..Enjoy

Made it this weekend at Spamboree.


It was a big hit at the group dinner.
I drained all the canned items but it was still too wet. Next time, I would remove the lid part of the time to boil excess liquid off. I also added a couple cans of Ortega diced chilies.


Sorry, the only finish8ing pix was taking it up to the dining area

A fw times a year I cook for a Dachshund Club that is out doing a field trial where they have two dogs at a time tracking rabbits. Two dogs at a time follow a rabbit trail and the dogs are judged on how well they stay on track. It involves a lot of people walking a lot so they are hungry.
For the Saturday trials I cook over charcoal. This time I will be doing Tamale Pie and needed to do a test run. An earlier batch was too wet for me. I made a test batch using a combination of the original Whitey's and Jeepdad's version.

Since I have to eat it all and the weather has been damp I used only one pound of meat and cooked indoors.


Some of the ingredients

Mixed and cooking on the stove top

Done..

Aprox ingredients:
1# ground beef
1/2 large onion diced
1 green chili diced
I jalapeno seeded and diced
3 cloves garlic
Meat sauteed and veggies added before meat was finished.
Topped with 1 tbsp mixed chili powders (New Mex, Serrano, Chipolte)
Added after veggies were soft:
8 oz tomato sauce
8oz drained corn
i can drained Rotel Diced Tomato & Chili
I small can drained green chili
Salt ( I do not add much, there should be plenty in canned processed food)
I box Jiffy Cornbread Muffin mix
Cooked on stovetop 15 min or so after meat was done.
30 min in oven at 400 (I was seasoning a DO at the same time Laughing )

Turned out very good, the sweetness of the muffin mix off set some of the hot of all the chili's. This was accidental, the store did not have any plain cornbread mix, but it worked out very well. Not too damp either. I will not have any problems finishing off this batch myself.
Trader Joe's has some Roasted Corn in the freezer section which may be a nice upgrade on the canned corn

I will upscale the ingredients for at least 3 #12 deep ovens and make one less hot than the others. Given the erratic hunt schedule (they have to find live rabbits to track) there will be plenty of time to cook these and boil off any excess moisture.
This will be in Corona CA on Super Bowl weekend, any volunteers are welcome to join me. Gold Tooth Smile:
