All the flavor of a tamale in an easy to put together casserole.
Using a large skillet, brown the ground beef and crumble as it cooks. Set aside. Using the same skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil and cook the onion and jalapeno pepper until soft and lightly brown, about 10 minutes. Add the garlic, cook and stir for an additional 2 minutes.
Return the cooked ground beef to the skillet with the onion and pepper. Add corn, tomatoes, tomato sauce, chili powder and cumin. Stir and continue cooking until mixture comes to a boil.
Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for another 7-8 minutes.
Pour this mixture into an oven safe casserole dish. Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top of the mixture and set aside.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees while making the topping.
In a bowl, mix the cornmeal, flour, salt, baking powder and chopped parsley.
In a smaller bowl, mix egg, milk, oil, chipotle pepper and adobo sauce.
Add the egg mixture to the cornmeal mixture and stir just enough to moisten and mix everything.
Pour the cornbread topping over the meat and cheese in the casserole and bake about 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Shan66 3y agoThis recipe had tons of flavor! My husband says it's a keeper. Only wanted to point out that the size of casserole dish to use is not listed. I used a 13x9 pan.
