Green Chile Tamale Pie

If you're looking for a simple and delicious meal that your kids will love, look no further than this tamale pie. I've been using this recipe for years for kids cooking classes because it's the perfect meal for kids to help make. The taco spiced beef mixture and sweet cornbread topping are a one of my favorite flavor combos. And while this dish is definitely a meal in itself, I would recommend serving it with roasted broccoli or green beans for added nutrition.



1. Preheat oven to 375.
2. Heat oil in a cast-iron skillet (or other oven-safe skillet) over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic and cook for 2 minutes, or until fragrant. Add beef and cook until no longer pink.



3. Add spices and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add green chiles, tomato sauce and cheese and stir to combine. Remove pan from heat.



4. Combine cornbread topping ingredients in a mixing bowl and spread evenly over the beef. Bake for 20 minutes.



5. Let the tamale pie sit for 5 minutes before serving.
