Tamale Pie for National Pie Month!

Tamale Pie for National Pie Month!

February is National Pie Month and you probably expected a recipe for chocolate pie - but that's so predictable!

We thought February called for something spicy and substantial, like this Tamale Pie! It's fast and easy to make with simple ingredients - perfect for those extended weekend camping trips when you don't feel like spending a lot of time in the RV galley.

Of course, you can raise the chile heat factor by the type of chile powder you use! See the recipe at the bottom for making your own chile powder.

1 – 16 oz. can of diced tomatoes

2 cups Whole Kernel Corn

1 Cup Cooked Pinto or Kidney beans

½ Cup drained black olives

In a skillet, brown the meat and add the onions, sauté until the onions are soft. Stir in the diced tomatoes, corn, beans, chile powder and olives. Cook for another 5 minutes.
