I have four sisters and one brother, and when I was growing up my mother always let us pick what dinner we wanted for our birthdays. Her Tamale Pie was always my pick. To this day, it is one of my favorite meals. Comforting, flavorful, and reminds me of family, and best yet, it’s ready to eat in 30 minutes!
Renee George’s Tamale Pie (family recipe)
1 lb of ground beef (I substitute ground turkey these days!)
1 can of corn (drained)
1 can of tomato sauce
Spices (3 tbs. Chili powder, 1 tsp. ground cumin, 2 tsp garlic, 2 tsp. onion powder – approximate amounts since I never really measure) or (2 packages of taco seasoning if you don’t want to mess with it, lol).
Salt and pepper to taste
1 can of medium Black Olives
Brown ground beef in skillet, rinse and drain to get rid of the grease (may substitute ground pork or turkey). In a larger pan, mix prepared ground beef, tomato sauce, the spices, drained corn, and enough tomato juice to make mixture slightly soupy. Bring to a boil. While stirring, slowly add corn meal, a little bit at a time until the mixture thickens. Remove from heat and stir in the whole black olives and serve. This main dish is great served with tortilla chips.
Oh, and I promised you a show! Here is a trailer for Dying Room Only! Mary from Mary’s Naughty Whispers said “I know there is a lot of controversy about trailers: time consuming to create one, limited exposure etc. And even if I am not a trailer addict, I must say that a well done trailer gives me the taste to read the story but also change the order of place in my to-read pile.” (Read the entire review here! )
What do you think? Do trailers whet your appetite for books?
