    Way back in the 1960's my Mom got a recipe for Tamale Pie from somewhere - it was VERY simple: ground beef, peppers and onions, tomatoes in some form, MAYBE some canned whole corn and a cornbread (batter) topping, all baked in a 9x13 pan.

    As good as I am at creating & recreating recipes, this one has me stumped - maybe I'm overthinking this. Ideas?

    This is my native Oregonian Mother's recipe. She was born here in 1905.
    Not spicy hot, but good and simple:
    Cast iron 12" skillet:
    She used a qt of canned meat (venison) {you can use stew meat or pork or canned chicken or turkey}
    1qt canned tomatoes
    onion, fried until done
    chili powder & or tabasco to taste
    salt & pepper to taste
    Cook above together until hot.
    Meanwhile, cook one cup corn meal in 2 1/2 c. salted water.
    Spoon cornmeal mush by spoonful around the skillet you have all other ingredients in.
    Do not stir!
    Heat in oven (400 degrees) about 30 minutes.

    1 16 oz. can tomato sauce
    1 Pkg. Jiffy corn muffin mix or equivalent
    1/2 cup evaporated milk
    1-1/2 cups grated cheese (any kind you prefer)

    Cook ground meat ande chopped veggies till meat is done and veggies sauteed in about 1 Tbsp. oil. Add tomato sauce and chili seasoning. Pour into large casserole (oblong is best). Mix corn muffin mix with canned milk and piour on topo. Bake at 375 degrees about 30 - 35 min. or till corn bread topping is lightly browned. Add cheese and return to oven for about 5 min. or till cheese is melted and bubbly. Let stand about 5 min. before serving. ENJOY!!!
