Chi Chi's Black Bean Tamale Pie

Chi Chi's Restaurant Recipe

1/2 pound ground lean beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 (15 oz.) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup CHI-CHI'S Thick & Chunky Salsa Medium
2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, divided
1/4 cup milk
1 large egg
2 tablespoons CHI-CHI'S Green Jalapenos Whole, minced
1 (8.5 oz.) package corn muffin mix

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 9 inch pie plate. In a large skillet, cook the beef, onions and bell pepper until the beef is no longer pink. Stir in the beans, salsa and jalapeƱos; remove from the heat.

In a medium bowl, combine the corn muffin mix, 1 cup cheese, the milk and egg. Stir just until moistened. Press the mixture over the bottom and up the side of a pie plate. Spoon the beef mixture into the crust.

Bake the pie 20 to 30 minutes or until set. Remove from the oven. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 cup of cheese. Bake 2 to 5 minutes longer or until the cheese is melted. Let stand 5 minutes.
Cut the pie into wedges. Serve with guacamole and salsa on the side.
