Halloween pictures are forth coming...

While you wait, here is something delicious to eat...  !Me Gusta Comer!

Tamale Pie
1 pound ground beef
1 packet taco seasoning
1 can whole kernel corn, drained
1 can Rotel
1 cup chopped green bell peppers
3 cups (6oz can) French fried onions
1 package corn muffin mix (plus everything you need to make the corn muffin mix)
½ cup shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Brown beef in large skillet; drain. Stir in taco seasoning, corn, rotel, bell peppers, and 1 ½ cups fried onions. Pour mixture into 2-quart oblong baking dish. (or an 8x8 pan)

Prepare corn muffin mix according to package directions. Spoon batter around edge of dish. Bake, uncovered, 20 minutes* or until corn bread is golden. Top with cheese and remaining 1 ½ cups onions.
Bake, uncovered 1 minute or until onions are golden.

*I ended up baking it for more like 25-30 min. before the cornbread was done, but I'm begining to think my oven has issues.

(a note:  if you do not like spicy food, or have small children who will be eating this, you might want to use the mild Rotel.   That said, my 19 month old ate this like there was no tomorrow.  She didn't mind the spice, I guess.)

Pretty much ALWAYS use the mild, because I'm a total lightweight.
