Slow-Cooker Tamale Pie.

Traditional tamales get a new wrap–golden corn muffin mix bakes in the slow cooker on top of the tamale filling.


Slow-Cooker Tamale Pie


  • 1/2 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 2 cups Progresso™ red kidney beans (from 19-oz can), drained, rinsed
  • 1 can (10 ounces) Old El Paso™ enchilada sauce
  • 1 pouch (6.5 ounces) cornbread & muffin mix
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons margarine or butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese (2 ounces)
  • 1 can (4.5 ounces) Old El Paso™ chopped green chiles, undrained
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 4 medium green onions, chopped (1/4 cup)


  1. In 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is brown; drain. Stir in beans and enchilada sauce.
