Jiffy Tamale Pie

  • 1/4 cup onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup green pepper, chopped
  • 1 TB. butter or margarine
  • 2 15-oz. cans chili (with beans)
  • 1 12-oz. can corn, drained
  • 3/4 cup black olives, chopped
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 package corn muffin mix
from Better Homes and Gardens Jiffy Cooking (1967)
In large skillet, cook onion and pepper in butter until tender. Stir in chili, corn and olives, bring to boil. Add cheese and stir to melt. Pour into baking pan. Prepare muffin mix according to package directions. Spoon dough in diagonal bands across top of casserole. Bake at 400° for 15-20 minutes.
This one seems very much like a tamale pie, although named differently. Note how no additional spices, even salt and pepper, are required ... I guess that's what makes it "jiffy" cooking.
