Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F
  1. 1

    Prepare Ingredients and Make Batter

    Trim and thinly slice green onions, keeping white and green portions separate.

    Stem poblano pepper, seed, and cut into 1/2" dice. Poblano peppers can vary in spice level; most are mild, but a few can be quite hot. Wash hands and cutting board after prepping.

    In a mixing bowl, combine corn muffin mix and 1/2 cup water until mixture reaches the consistency of pancake batter. If too thick, add additional water, 1 Tbsp. at a time and up to 3 Tbsp., until desired consistency is reached.

  2. 2

    Cook the Ground Beef

    Place a large oven-safe non-stick pan over medium-high heat.

    Add ground beef, seasoning blend, and white portions of green onions to hot, dry pan. Break up meat until no pink remains and beef reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes.

  3. 3

    Make the Sauce

    Add poblano to hot pan. Stir occasionally until tender, 4-6 minutes.

    Add flour and stir until no dry flour remains.

    Add 1/2 tsp. salt, 2 cups water, and tomatoes. Bring to a simmer, stirring constantly.

    Once simmering, stir constantly until sauce thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon, 3-5 minutes.

    Stir in corn. Remove from burner.

  4. 4

    Bake the Tamale Pie

    Top pan with 7-8 dollops of batter.

    Place pan in hot oven and bake until corn muffin top is golden-brown and firm, 20-25 minutes.

    Carefully remove pan from oven and top evenly with cheese. Handle will be hot! Use an oven mitt.

    Bake again in hot oven until cheese is melted, 3-5 minutes.

    Carefully remove from oven.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish

    Serve family-style, topping pie with sour cream and green portions of green onions. Bon appétit!
