Tamale Pie - by Steph

A friend brought this to me as a frozen dinner when I had the twins. All our friends pulled together and brought meals to eat and some for the freezer. We so enjoyed trying new things and having good food when we were too busy and exhausted to make it.

1lb ground beef - cook and drain

1 15 oz can ranch style beans

1 14.5 can diced tomatoes

1 box jiffy cornbread mix

combine meat and beans and tomatoes, simmer to reduce extra liquid. Pour into 8by11 pan.

Mix package of cornbread according to the directions. Spoon over the top of bean and meat mixture. bake 400degree 20 minutes or so.

this turned out better than i expected, maybe it's just me, but i want to home-cook every day, but between everyone's schedules it's not always possible. this recipe made me feel like i was still cooking :)

ps, we added cheese to the cornbread mixture and a can of chopped green chilis for a little extra punch
