Tonight's dinner was an experiment, a VERY spicy experiment. Still delicious! Recipe below. If you have never used Hunt's new fire roasted diced tomatoes you should! They just add another level to the way canned diced tomatoes taste. I think they are amazing! Especially in Mexican dishes.
Side Note: If you have never used coupons.com I highly recommend it. Today at Walmart, I saved over $10 using coupons I had printed off the internet. There were some really great coupons today including one for Starbucks ice cream, stuffing mix, and chicken broth and stock.
SPICY CHILPOTLE TAMALE PIE
1 lb. lean ground beef
1 onion chopped
1 can drained black beans
1 can drained Hunt's fire roasted diced tomatoes
1 small can chilpotle, use 2 peppers from can and dice and use 1-2 tsp adobo sauce in can
1 cornbread mix
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
garlic powder to taste
black pepper to taste
Brown ground beef and onion in skillet. Add black beans, tomatoes, chopped adobo and spices and let simmer for a few minutes. Place in a pie or gatin dish. Mix cornbread batter according to directions and pour on top of meat mixture. Sprinkle cheddar cheese on top. Bake in a 350*F oven for 30 minutes. I used 3 chilpotle peppers from the can and it was VERY spicy. Next time I will only use 2. These are very spicy and you may end up wasting the rest of the can, but they are very inexpensive and have a great flavor! Chilpotle or as it is usually spelled "Chipotle" is a smoked jalapeno.
