Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound, lean ground turkey
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 (15-ounce) can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 (8-ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 2 chipotle chiles, plus 1 teaspoon adobo sauce, from can chipotle in adobo
  • 1 cup grated Cheddar
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 (8.5-ounce) package cornbread mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup milk
Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Grease an 8-inch baking dish with the butter and set it aside.

Heat the olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the ground turkey, the onions, green peppers, and garlic and cook until the turkey is no longer pink and is cooked through, about 8 minutes. Drain off any excess fat and sprinkle the meat mixture with the cumin.

Add the beans, tomatoes, chiles and adobo sauce to the skillet and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer until heated through and slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove pan from the heat and stir in the cheese and cilantro.

Spread the turkey mixture in the prepared baking dish, pressing down on it with the back of a spoon to make an even, compact layer.

Combine the cornbread mix with milk and egg. Spread the cornbread batter over the turkey mixture and bake until the cornbread is golden-brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Let the tamale pie stand for 5 minutes before cutting into squares and serving.
