When you're in the mood for a spicey, south-of-the-border meal and need a quick fix for dinner, try this crockpot tamale pie.
In a large skillet, cook ground beef over medium heat, breaking up with a spatula, until no longer pink; drain and return beef to skillet. Remove from heat and stir in cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper.
Transfer to a 5 quart crock pot; stir in the beans, tomatoes with green chilis, corn, enchilada sauce, onions, and cilantro. Cover and cook on low for 7 hrs.
After beef mixture has cooked for 7 hours, combine the corn mix and eggs in a small bowl; spoon corn mix over the meat mixture. Cover and cook 1 hour longer or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the corn mix comes out clean. Sprinkle with cheese and let stand until melted.
Helpful Tips: Serve with sour cream and shredded lettuce, if desired.
