Tamale Pie



1 lb. lean ground beef
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped bell peppers (I added)
1 envelope (1 1/4 oz.) taco seasoning mix
1 can (8 oz.) stewed tomatoes drained & chopped (I omitted)
1/2 cup frozen whole kernel corn, thawed & drained (I omitted)
1 jar (16 oz.) Your Favorite Salsa (I added)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (I added)
1/2 cup Bisquick Mix
1/4 cup Yellow cornmeal (I used white)
1 cup milk
2 eggs

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Spray a pie plate (I use cake pan) with cooking spray.  Cook beef until brown.  Drain.  Stir in onions, (bell peppers) and taco mix.  Spread in pie plate.  Sprinkle with tomatoes and corn.  (I spread the salsa over mine instead of the tomatoes & corn and sprinkled with the cheese.)  In a medium bowl mix the remaining ingredients until blended (this works best with a whisk or fork).  Pour evenly over the ingredients in the pie plate.  Bake 30-35 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.  Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Comment:  This is another one of those simple, yet delicious, Bisquick Impossible Pie recipes.  As you can see I did make a few changes but have given you the original recipe as well.  I must say that mine turned out so delicious.  I topped it with a little sour cream.  Serve it with a salad and you have a meal that's ready in no time with very little preparation.  These forgotten recipes from my earlier years are worth bringing back.
