This recipe grew out of trying to copy "Hamburger Helper" meals because I didn't want to buy the processed mix. I still get requests for it from family.

You can also add a can of drained black beans or pinto beans to the beef before putting on the corn muffin mix. Gives more protein and stretches the dish.

How to Make Chili-Tamale Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Use a heavy, oven-proof skillet. I used a cast iron one. Preheat oven to temperature specified on corn muffin mix.
  2. Brown beef and onion in the skillet over medium-high heat. Pour off any fat. Stir in Ro-Tel and chili powder. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until sauce is reduced and thick.
  3. Mix corn muffin mix using the milk for the liquid, and stir in the grated cheese. Spread mixture on top of the beef in the skillet.
  4. Bake casserole for time specified on muffin mix, usually 20-25 minutes. Allow to sit 5-10 minutes before serving.
