From My Casa to Yours......
Earlier this summer, Mountain Rose Herbs were incredibly gracious in offering my family & I the opportunity to try some of their scrumptous products from their Epicurean Organics line and share our experience.
It has been an honor and lots of fun to gather my children in the kitchen to experiment with recipes including the seasonings & oils offered by Mountains Rose Herbs. This week, I would like to share our experience with the Epicurean Organic's : Mexican Seasoning!
The Mexican Seasoning is a wonderful blend of organic Cilantro, Onion, Red Pepper & other organic herbs & spices.
Our family loves Mexican food and choosing a recipe (for we love so many) was a challenge but finally decided on the beloved, Tamale Pie.
1 lb. ground beef
1 (4 oz.) can diced green chili's
1 (14 oz.) can diced tomatoes
1 cup chunky salsa
1/2 c. sliced black olives (drained)
2 teaspoons Mexican Seasoning
1 teaspoon salt
1 c. shredded Mexican cheese blend
Corn Bread batter:
1 c. flour
1 c. cornmeal
2-4 Tablespoons organic sugar or honey
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 beaten eggs
1 C. milk
1/4 oil (we use coconut)
Preheat oven 350 degrees.
In a large pot, cook & stir ground beef till done & drain off fat. Stir in tomatoes, salsa, green chilies, salt, mexican seasoning & olives until thoroughly combined. Spread mixture into dish (deep dish pie pan, cast-iron skillet or rectangular casserole glass dish.
Make corn bread batter and cover over top of meat mixture.
Bake for 40-45 minutes or until bubbly & corn bread is lightly golden.
Top with cheese & bake another 5 minutes or so (until cheese melts).
Delicioso!! We really noticed the difference the seasoning added, as it seemed to create a depth & complete the mexican flavors in the pie that we had not previously experienced; when we used just a dash of chili pepper here and cumin there.
