  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add ground beef; brown 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour off drippings. Stir in seasoning mix, beans and water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally; set aside.
  2. Meanwhile in medium bowl, combine crust ingredients, mixing just until dry ingredients are moistened. (Batter will be stiff.) Using spoon dipped in water, spread slightly more than 1/2 the batter onto bottom and up side of 9-inch pie pan.
  3. Arrange corn over batter; top with beef mixture. Spoon remaining batter over beef, along outer edge of pie. Carefully spread batter toward center, leaving a 3-inch circle uncovered. Bake in 400 degrees F oven 23 to 25 minutes or until top is golden brown.
  4. To serve, dollop 3/4 cup sour cream over top; sprinkle with 3/4 cup cheese and 1/3 cup green onions. Cut into wedges.

Delicious. However, to give it more of an authentic Mexican flavor, I added 1/2 tsp cumin, 1 1/2 tsp chili powder, and a can of drained black olives. Great recipe; my family loved it. Thanks!

I made this in my cast iron skillet and popped it in the oven. I followed the recipe exactly except I left off the green onion. It was very hearty & filling. Would be great for a larger family.

Good dish. The crust was unimpressive to me and was a little dry. Would have prefered tortilla chips. Hubby really liked as did my 15 month old. I added some onion and garlic for some more flav...

This was delicious! I added a small, drained can of sliced black olives to the meat mixture. My picky husband was pleased and asked me to make it a regular family meal.

Delicious! Everyone loved. Fought for the leftovers.
