Easy Tamale Pie (using a Jiffy corn muffin mix!)

Tamale Pie

My Mom has made this for years and it was always one of my favorites growing up. Something about the Southwestern flavors and the cheesiness and the warm cornbread topping just gets me every time.Tamale Pie | Tamale Pie Recipe | Tamale Pie Jiffy | Jiffy Corn Muffin | Mexican Dish | Mexican Casserole | Tamale Casserole | Easy Tamale Pie | This easy tamale pie recipe is made with a Jiffy corn muffin mix and is a great weeknight dinner recipe for your busy family!

This makes a great week night meal – it’s basically a one-dish meal and can be thrown together very quickly. I know in our family, we like to keep canned tomatoes, corn, beans, and Jiffy mixes on stock at all times so we can make tamale pie or taco soup or really anything Mexican haha. That’s definitely one of our favorite types of food around here!

Start off by browning the meat with the onions and seasoning with taco seasoning and draining.

Then mix everything together right in your 9×13 baking dish (let’s all cheer for an easy *almost* one-dish meal haha).

Top it with corn muffin mix (thank you, Jiffy!) and cheese and bake and . . . voila you have Tamale Pie! 🙂

I like to serve it with sour cream and salsa and cilantro (and avocado if I have any!)
