Tamale Roundabout

This was originally a Pampered Chef recipe, but over the years I have modified it to suit my family.

To be baked in a bundt (or similar) pan.

1 box Krusteaz honey cornbread mix (8x8 pan size) and the ingredients listed on the box.
OR your favorite cornbread recipe.

1 lb. Ground beef

Diced red and green pepper (I don't do this 'cause I don't like them!!)

All to taste:
Chili powder
Onion Powder (or if your fam likes onion you could finely chop 1/2 an onion)
salt & pepper

3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese + 1/4 cup reserved

1 pint homemade salsa (the recipe calls for 16 oz jar of thick & chunky salsa)

Heat oven to 385...I know its a strange temp, but it is 1/2 way between the recipe and the cornbread...and it works!
Brown ground beef (and onion if using), drain, sprinkle with spices. Add salsa and let simmer on med-low for 5-7 minutes. While simmering prepare cornbread, and fold in shredded cheese. Sprinkle peppers in bundt pan. When meat/salsa mixture is done simmering, fold it into the cornbread/cheese mixture. Spread evenly over peppers in pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes. remove from oven and let cool for a minute or two. Invert pan onto serving dish. Sprinkle reserved 1/4 cup cheese over the top. Serve with sour cream if desired.


Quick & Delicious Bread

I love ward cookbooks. I'm just as guilty as the next sister, but who doesn't want to share only their BEST recipes? This is one from the ward I grew up in, and originally came from my YW's leader. I mixed up a batch this morning while the kids were eating breakfast, and by lunch we had homemade bread to devour!

3/4 C. granulated sugar
4 t. yeast
3 C. warm water
1/3 C. oil
1 egg
3 t. salt
8 C. flour

Combine sugar, warm water, and yeast in large mixing bowl; let stand 10 mins. Combine oil and egg and add to yeast mixture. Stir in salt and 3 C. flour; mix well. Stir in additional 3 C. flour; mix well. Add enough of remaining flour to make a soft, sticky dough. Cover bowl and allow to rise until double in bulk; punch down, turn dough over in bowl, and allow to rise covered, until double in bulk again - about 45 minutes. Your dough will still be pretty sticky; use flour on the counter and your fingers to shape dough into 3 loaves and put in greased loaf pans; cover and allow to rise until doubled, about 30 mins. Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes, or until loaves are lightly browned. Brush crusts with melted butter to soften.
