Beef Tamale Pie has a corn muffin bottom, topped with red enchilada sauce, ground beef with onions and green peppers then all that covered with cheese.

This is another cooking class recipe so pictures were taken quickly. This was made in an aluminum pan so we could take it home. I don’t care for green peppers so this was given to my husband and he loved it!
