i watched Simply Deliciouso for the first time on Foodnetwork and i love the show. the hot Latina lady reminds me of my girl Vanessa, who i miss A TON so i feel like i’m bonding with her likeness.

this recipe is amazing, the use of Canned Chipotles in Adobo Sauce makes the dish…it really is major flavor, and the sweet cornbread layer on top is the perfect combo.

try it out yourself!

CHIPOTLE TAMALE PIE

1 tablespoon unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound, lean ground turkey
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, diced
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 (15-ounce) can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 (8-ounce) can diced tomatoes
2 chipotle chiles, plus 1 teaspoon adobo sauce, from can chipotle in adobo
1 cup grated Cheddar
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
1 (8.5-ounce) package cornbread mix
1 egg
1/3 cup milk

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.Grease an 8-inch baking dish with the butter and set it aside.

2. Heat the olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the ground turkey, the onions, green peppers, and garlic and cook until the turkey is no longer pink and is cooked through, about 8 minutes. Drain off any excess fat and sprinkle the meat mixture with the cumin.

3. Add the beans, tomatoes, chiles and adobo sauce to the skillet and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer until heated through and slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove pan from the heat and stir in the cheese and cilantro.

4. Spread the turkey mixture in the prepared baking dish, pressing down on it with the back of a spoon to make an even, compact layer.

5. Combine the cornbread mix with milk and egg and bake according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Spread the cornbread batter over the turkey mixture and bake until the cornbread is golden-brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Let the tamale pie stand for 5 minutes before cutting into squares and serving.
