Crock-Pot Tamale Bake
My family LOVES Mexican food! And, while this recipe is not an authentic Mexican dish it is inspired by those delicious south of the border flavors we all love.
This yummy casserole type dish really hits the spot on a busy weeknight dinner. Ground beef is browned on the stove-top (you can totally do this ahead of time and just pull a bag of frozen pre-cooked hamburger out of the freezer) and then tons of great flavors are added with onion, garlic, tomatoes and spices and then everything is topped with a homemade cornbread type topping and cooked in the slow cooker.
Cheese and a sprinkle of green onions is the final touch and you have a hearty stick-to-your-ribs dinner that everyone will adore. This is one of my go-to recipes when I need something that I KNOW my kids will eat after a busy day of school and then evening after-school activities!
