Hot Tamale!

I am not a cook! I don't like the cooking, cleaning up or anything about being in the kitchen. Most everyone knows it. I told Keith those exact words the night I met him. I don't think he believed me....but boy, have I proved him right in the last 15 years! Ha!

But every once in a blue moon, I can concoct something that is just downright yummy (if I do say so myself). When I was working the consignment sale a few weeks ago....a girl brought in a casserole that she called "Tamale Casserole". OMG!! It was delicious! I gave her my email address and asked her to send me the recipe (I didn't know her). She said she would. She didn't. But I couldn't get that dang casserole out of my mind so I decided to experiment a little and see if I could do a re make!

I made it a few weeks ago. Keith (who, by the way is NOT a casserole man) loved it. Todd came over and I made some for him and he loved it. So I think I did good!

Anyway...I made it tonight and decided to share the recipe with all of you. If you decide to try it...please let me know what you think!

(The pics came out a tad blurry but I didn't realize it until it was too late!)


Ground Beef .....about 1 1/2 lb
1 jar Salsa
1 Can Niblet corn (drained)
1 package shredded cheese
1 large container sour cream
Jiffy Cornbred Mix
1 egg
1/3 cup milk
onion, salt, pepper

Make the Jiffy cornbread according to box. Set aside to cool. Brown your beef with chopped onion, salt and pepper. Drain thoroughly. In a bowl, mix beef, salsa, corn. Mine seemed a little dry so I added some taco sauce. Layer your meat mixture in a casserole dish. Cover with a layer of sour cream. Cover that with the shredded cheese. After the cornbread is cooled....crumble on top of your casserole. Put back in oven at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until top is golden brown.

Sounds good, may have to try it.

And I like the new background but the color of the main text is REALLY hard to read.
