Tonight's yummy dinner was inspired by Betty Crocker's Chicken Tamale Pie. I made a few adjustments using ingredients I had on hand and it came out really good! The filling was really flavorful and the topping was crunchy and buttery, just the way I like it! What a great start to the weekend!
1 lb bulk sausage, casing removed
1 pkg Taco Seasoning (I used McCormick's)
1 c shredded Mexican cheese blend
1/2 c Bisquick
1/2 c cornmeal
3/4 c milk
1 c corn
1 c chopped tomatoes
Sour cream, for topping
Chives, for garnish
1. Preheat oven to 400°F. In a skillet, cook sausage over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until sausage is no longer pink; drain. Stir in Taco seasoning, tomatoes and corn. Cook until heated through, stirring to combine. Pour mixture into a 9-inch pie plate. Sprinkle with cheese.
2. In medium bowl, stir Bisquick, cornmeal, milk, egg and corn until blended. Pour over sausage mixture and cheese.
3. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in topping comes out clean. To serve, cut into wedges and top with sour cream and chives.
