Gluten-free Tamale Pie Recipe

by Sandy Kirby Quandt

This simple gluten-free Tamale Pie recipe is a cinch to make and very tasty.

  • 1 1/2 lb lean ground beef
  • 14 oz can Mexican-style diced tomatoes
  • 11 oz can corn with peppers, drained
  • 16 oz package prepared polenta
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 Tbsp tomato paste,
  • 2 oz can sliced black olives, drained
  • 1-2 Tbsp chili powder per taste
  • 1 cup shredded Pepper Jack Cheddar Cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, cook the beef and onion for five minutes, or until browned.

Add the tomatoes with juice, tomato paste, corn, olives and chili powder.

Simmer for five minutes, then place in a 2 1/2 quart baking dish.

Cut the polenta lengthwise into quarter, then slice across the quarters into wedges 1/4 inch thick. Scatter over the meat and top with the cheese.

Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and everything’s bubbling.
