To make Tamale Pie, you will need the following ingredients:

Ingridiens for Tamale Pie

Steps to make Tamale Pie


Preheat oven and prepare skillet


Preheat the oven to 400 °F and spray a large oven-safe skillet with some cooking spray to grease.


Combine pie mix


In a mixing bowl, whisk 1 box of corn muffin mix with 1 egg, ½ cup of sour cream and ½ cup of canned creamed corn until well combined. Pour into the grease skillet.


Bake pie


Bake pie mix for about 20 minutes until golden then remove from heat and set aside to cool.


Cook onion and spices


In a separate skillet over medium heat, heat oil and add 1 chopped onion, 1 teaspoon ground cumin, 1 teaspoon of chili powder and season with salt and pepper. Toss and cook for about 5 minutes until softened.


Add garlic


Add 2 cloves of minced garlic and cook for about 1 minute until aromatic.


Add beef


Add 1 pound of ground beef and crumble while cooking for about 6 minutes until the meat is no longer pink then drain excess fat.


Add enchilada sauce


Once cooled, use a fork to poke the entire cornbread, all over and pour ⅓ cup of enchilada sauce over.


Add beef and cheese


Add cooked ground beef mix over the enchilada sauce and sprinkle 1 cup of shredded Сheddar cheese and 1 cup of Monterey Jack cheese to top.




Cover the skillet with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes until the cheese has melted.




Remove aluminum foil and change the oven setting to broil. Broil, uncovered, for about 5 minutes until the cheese is golden.

Too spicy so going to dodge the chili stuff next time around other than that it was delicious.

Sailor Mahaffie

Corn muffin mix isn't in any shops i live by what can i replace it with?

Galilea Slavish

I didn't used canned creamed corn used normal corn on a cob and shaved it off to make it taste more fresh.

Anika Bubela

Way too spicy for me but I did like the taste quite a bit so no issue here really.

Accidently used sunflower oil instead of olive oil but thankfully the taste wasn't that different.

Kadence Meher

I emptied out the entire sourcream container into this.

Hubby and I wanted to try some Mexican food out today cause we are both Puerto rican and wanted to see if there was much of a difference, turns out there really isn't this was super good.

Miyah Finkley

Tasty though i'm not too pleased with the way it looks sadly, I think it could look a lot better than old cheese and meat.

Spencer Borrmann

My kids were chugging their milk after this tamale pie but they didn't complain ahaha.

Pyper Albakri

Made these with some sweet platinos on the side too.

Didn't have monterey jack cheese so used good ole moldy cheese freshly bought and it was yummy.

Dani Bahnmiller

Loved every bite of it amazing and affordable exactly what I was looking for today :)

Good but I think this should be placed under Mexican and not half American cause it really is our traditional dish.
