Slow Cooker Tamale Pie

  • Cooking Time:

    6–7 hours
  • Servings:



1 lb. lean ground beef or turkey
1 onion, chopped
2 clove gar­lic, minced
1 pkg. taco sea­son­ing
15 oz. canned kid­ney beans, drained
6 oz. pkg corn muf­fin mix
1/3 c. milk
2 tsp. veg­etable oil
1 egg
1 c. shred­ded col­by (or co-jack, mon­terey jack) cheese
4 oz. can chopped green chiles, UNDRAINED
1/2 c. sour cream
1/2 c. sal­sa
1/4 c. fresh cilantro, chopped

  1. In non-stick skil­let, cook ground beef, onion and gar­lic over medi­um heat until meat is just cooked (don’t brown too much). Break up meat into small­er bits.
  2. Add taco or chili sea­son­ing mix and water (just enough to moist­en), and stir until sea­son­ing is mixed through­out. Stir in drained kid­ney beans, and pour mix­ture into 4–5 quart slow cook­er. While the meat is cook­ing in the skil­let, you can do some of the fol­low­ing prep work.
  3. In large bowl, mix togeth­er corn muf­fin mix, milk, but­ter and egg just until com­bined. Fold the cheese and chiles (includ­ing the liq­uid from them) into the corn muf­fin batt­ter, then spoon mix­ture over the beef in slow cook­er.
  4. Cov­er. Cook on Low for 6–7 hours or until a tooth­pick insert­ed in the corn bread mix­ture comes out clean.
  5. In a small bowl, com­bine sour cream, sal­sa, and cilantro; serve with pie.

This looks great! All ingre­di­ents I love. Ques­tion: the beans in the pic­ture look like black beans — did you sub­sti­tute those for the kid­ney beans? Thank you!
