Oh Baby It's Hot, Hot, HOT!

Good evening my amazing blogging friends and readers! I have a wonderful dish that I borrowed from my sister for everyone to try tonight. It is a goopy, cheesy, delightful dish. My sister found this recipe while gaming. She loves to game and loves games about food, so it is appropriate for this blog. Enough chatter, let's get cooking!

Hot Tamale Pie

You will need:

  • 1.25 pounds ground pork
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 1 medium jalapeno chile, seeds removed, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 16 ounces salsa
  • 1 cup frozen whole-kernel corn
  • 2.25 cups whole milk
  • 1.75 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

  1. Preheat your broiler.
  2. Heat a 12 inch skillet over high heat until hot.
  3. Add the pork and cook for 5 to 6 minutes or until no longer pink, making sure to break up the meat with the side of a spoon.
  4. With a slotted spoon, transfer the pork to a bowl and wipe your skillet clean.
  5. In the same skillet, heat some oil over medium heat. 
  6. Add the green pepper, jalapeno, and onion, then cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden.
  7. Return the pork to the skillet and stir in the salsa and corn.
  8. Heat everything to boiling over high heat.
  9. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, uncovered for 5 minutes or until the mixture thickens slightly.
  10. Meanwhile, in a 3-quart saucepan, bring the milk and broth to a boil over high heat.
  11. Reduce the heat to low, while gradually whisking in the cornmeal.
  12. Cook for 5 minutes or until very thick, making sure to stir often.
  13. Spoon over the pork mixture and sprinkle with cheese.
  14. Place the skillet in the broiler, making sure to put it in a position closest to the source of heat.
  15. Broil for 3 to 4 minutes or until the top begins to brown.
  16. Enjoy!

I hope you all enjoy this lovely, cheesy delight. I will catch you all on the flip side. I send blogging love out to you all! Good night!
