Tamale Pie

I have always loved this dish. It's pretty easy, tastes great and makes for yummy leftovers.

1 lb. hamburger
1/2 onion chopped
2 8oz cans tomato sauce
2 tsp. chile powder
1 can corn
1 tsp. salt
couple shakes of garlic salt
1 1/2 cups grated cheese

Cook hamburger and onions in skillet until done. Add rest of ingredients except the cheese. Simmer for 10 min. Then, stir in cheese until melted and pour into 9x13 pan.

Cornmeal Top
3/4 cup cornmeal
1 Tbs. butter
2 cups water
1/2 c. cheese

Boil water. Add butter and cornmeal. Stir quickly to avoid too many lumps. Add cheese. Spoon and spread over meat mixture. Bake at 375 for 35 minutes. Serve with sour cream and tortilla chips.

I love, love tamale pie! My grandma always made it for us and it's comfort food for me. This seems like a good and easy recipe for it. I like the addition of cheese in the cornmeal mixture. Thanks, Holl!
