Published with Blogger-droid v1.6.5

I picked up this cookbook for 25 cents and I was happy to find that is loaded with great recipes that call for fresh and healthy ingredients.

Tamale pie :

11/2 pounds ground beef

3 cloves garlic

1rib celery chopped

1large onion chopped

1green pepper chopped

2 cans tomatoes with chiles (20 ounces)

8 ounce can tomato sauce

1 cup cornmeal

1tsp salt

4 cups water

1/2 pound shredded cheese Monterey jack or cheddar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Brown ground beef and then add garlic, celery, onion, and green pepper. Cook vegetables and meat until vegetables are soft, about 10 minutes.

Cook until thick.

Combine cornmeal, salt and water in a large pot. Cover and cook over medium heat until thick mush forms stirring often.

Layer mush (reserving some for the top layer). Cheese and meat mixture in a greased 2 quart casserole dish. Top with remaining mush.

Bake uncovered for 1 hour
