Nothing could be quite so white trash as Frito pie, but I don't have any Fritos, so I didn't go all the way to the depths that I could have. However, I have 5 boxes of Jiffy corn muffin mix. Here's what I whipped up for dinner last night out of the cupboard:

Tamale Pie
1 can Pinto Beans
1 box Jiffy corn muffin mix
1 Tbsp barbecue sauce
1/3 cup Parmelat milk
(I keep it for guests)
1 Jalepeno (sliced)
1 Thai Bird Chile (minced)
1 egg
4 handfulls of frozen roasted corn
1 handfull sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1 Morningstar breakfast veggie sausage patty, chopped

I pre-heated the oven to 400 degrees. In a bowl I mixed the beans, chiles, barbecue sauce, faux sausage patty, and corn, then dumped that into a baking dish. In the same bowl (why make more work for Hudson who does all the dishes) mixed muffin mix, egg, milk. Dumped that over the corn & bean mixture. Whacked the dish into the oven for 20 minutes, tested to see that the corn topping was baked, then sprinkled the cheese on top and gave it 2 minutes to get melty and bubbly.

Not bad at all. First test down. Satisfying, barbecuey, corny, nice to cozy up with a bowl of that while watching "The Borgias" which if they don't pick up the pace of, I'm going to call "The Boring-gias". If you try this recipe, my recommendation would be to leave out the faux breakfast meat, it's kinda weird but I put it in cuz I saw hudson had opened the package and I was afraid it would get freezer burn. Shouldn't have compromised my vision of the beans and corn.

Now, What else have I got?
