Tamale pie is a simple, spicy casserole everyone in the family will enjoy. This is a sponsored post for Boiron® and PTPA. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
As you know I love Tex-Mex. It’s a side effect of growing up in Texas. The other day I was looking through my pantry deciding what to make for dinner. We are getting ready to move back to Texas (finally!!) and I am trying to use up all the food I have on hand instead of buying more food. To say things are getting creative would be an understatement. Some meals are turning out substantially better than others. I happen to have all these ingredients on hand because I make red chicken enchiladas and taco soup a lot. We make homemade salsa all the time and have a little salsa garden. With all this on hand it made it pretty easy to come up with something tasty and I must say this recipe for Texas tamale pie turned out fantastic!
Texas Tamale Pie
Tamale Pie Ingredients:
1 small box of Jiffy Cornbread mix
1 large egg, room temperature
1/2 C low fat sour cream
1/2 C creamed corn
1 lb ground beef
1 yellow onion, chopped
3 TBSP minced garlic
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 C of red enchilada sauce (10 oz can)
1/2 of a bag of shredded Monterey jack cheese
2 Jalapeno’s sliced into rounds
1/4 C minced cilantro
Tamale Pie Directions:
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
Grease a round baking dish and set aside
In a large mixing bowl, combine the box of corn bread, egg, sour cream, and creamed corn.
Mix until combined
Pour into your prepared baking dish and place into the oven for 20-22 minutes or until golden brown
While the corn bread is in the oven, using a large skillet, cook the ground beef, onion, minced garlic and spices.
Once the meat is browned, set aside to cool
When the cornbread is done, use the bottom of a wooden skewer and poke holes all around the corn bread.
Pour half a can of the red enchilada sauce onto the corn bread
Scoop the beef and onion mixture onto the corn bread and top with cheese and sliced Jalepano
Place back into the oven for 15-20 more minutes until the cheese is fully melted
Let cool for 5 minutes before serving!
Don’t Worry About Heartburn or Bloating
Now you may be looking at this spicy casserole thinking there’s no way I can eat this. You might be worried about heartburn or upset stomach. Well, I’ve got good news. There’s two Boiron homeopathic products I use just to avoid these issues when eating spicy Tex-Mex food. I eat fairly heavy on a regular basis, so I speak from lots of experience.
Acidil® offers temporary relief by targeting the three main symptoms: heartburn due to acid reflux, production of gas from fermentation due to slow digestion, and stomachaches from acidity.*
Gasalia® is a homeopathic medicine, that relieves bloating, pressure, discomfort and pain associated with gas.* They are tiny quick-dissolving, unflavored tablets melt under the tongue for a convenient and discreet way to relieve gas or bloating anywhere. Anyone ages 6 and up can take this.
Gasalia® and Acidil® is available at almost every Walmart store. It’s also found in natural product chains, such as Sprouts Farmers Markets and Whole Foods Market, as well as Vitamin Shoppe and local health food / natural product stores.
