This tamale pie is AWESOME. Make it NOW. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200.


For Topping
1 pouch Betty Crocker Authentic Cornbread & Muffin Mix
1/4 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters)
3 tbsp. no-sugar-added applesauce

For Pie
One 12-oz. package frozen ground-beef-style soy crumbles (like Morningstar Farms Meal Starters Grillers Recipe Crumbles or Boca Meatless Ground Burger**)
1/2 cup canned sweet corn kernels, drained
1/2 cup canned black beans
1/3 cup chopped onion
2 tbsp. taco sauce
1 tbsp. taco seasoning
1/2 tsp. ground cumin

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix together cornbread mix, egg substitute and applesauce. Set aside.

In a large pan sprayed lightly with nonstick spray, begin to cook onions and soy crumbles over medium heat. Once crumbles have thawed, add in taco seasoning, cumin, and 1/4 cup of water. Stirring occasionally, continue to cook until the water has absorbed. Then add the taco sauce, corn, and black beans, and mix well.

Pour mixture into a large round casserole dish sprayed lightly with nonstick spray, and then evenly cover with the cornbread topping mixture.

Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, or until top is golden brown and firm.
