Mini Tamale Pies

  • This is an easy little Mexican meal that pairs nicely with a salad, fresh fruit or even some Mexican rice.  
  • 1 can (15oz) pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (15oz) diced tomatoes
  • 1 ear corn, shucked or 1 can  corn, drained
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp  garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 c. chopped onion
  • 1/4 c. chopped cilantro
  • 1 1/2 cups masa harina
    1/2 cup vegetable broth
    1/3 cups vegetable oil
    1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
      Mix beans, tomatoes, corn, spices , and cilantro in a saucepan.  Heat over medium heat for about 10 minutes.  While that is cooking mix the masa, vegetable broth and oil together.  Form into 8 balls.Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray. Press one ball down and up the sides of a muffin cup.  Repeat with remaining balls.  Put filling into each muffin cup over masa dough.  Bake for  20 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove from the oven and evenly sprinkle the shredded cheese over the filling. Return the pan to the oven and bake until the cheese is melted for 10 minutes.
       Let cool for 5 minutes. Run a knife around the edges of each well to loosen and remove the pies. Top with sour cream and cilantro.
