Very Easy Tamale Pie...

I have been all about simple these past few weeks.
It's been very hot and very humid here
and we aren't quite use to the humidity in our neck of the woods.

It's too hot and sticky to be outside much during the heat of the day
and when you are, the mosquitoes will eat you alive!

So, when I do bake anything, I try to either do it early in the morning 
or later, much later in the evening.

Very Easy Tamale Pie

2-3 cups shredded beef
(mine was left over from a roast)

1 can black beans, rinsed and drained

1 1/2 cup beef broth

4-5 green chilies, chopped
or 2 cans of the diced green chilies

1 1/2  Tbsp. chili powder

2 garlic gloves, minced

 1/2 cups cheese

3/4 cup cornmeal 

1 cup water

2 Tbsp. butter, melted

salt and pepper to taste

Sour Cream to garnish

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Heat up the beef, beans, green chilies and 1/2 cup beef broth in your cast iron skillet.
Stir in the chili power, salt and pepper and the garlic.
Remove from heat.

Meanwhile, combine the cornmeal with the remaining 
1 cup broth and 1 cup water in a medium pan.
Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring until very thick, about 5 minutes or so.
Remove from heat and stir in the cheese and butter.  

Spread the cornmeal mixture over the filling and bake until cooked through,
about 30 minutes or until golden brown on top.
Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.

Serve with sour cream.

It looks just delicious Amy. I love that you use shredded beef in it. my tummy growling. I definitely will make this for Steve. Thanks for inviting Steve over for the Fourth. It really blessed him to be asked, even though he had work and plans he was finishing up with Dale, it was nice to know he could go over to your house. I missed you this year for the fourth, and was remembering the fun we have often had at the water parade in Pueblo West with all of you. Have a lovely week.

Oh how very delicious and tasty this pie looks! Dear Amy, thank you for sharing your lovely recipe with us...summertime cooking can be challenging and is usually best to use simple recipes and cook early in the morning or very late when its cooled down somewhat!
Blessings on your Sunday...much love!
