Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 3/4 pound ground round
  • 1/2 cup bottled salsa
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons bottled chipotle sauce (such as La Preferidia) or hot sauce
  • 1 (15 1/2-ounce) can pinto beans in zesty sauce (such as S&W), undrained
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can no-salt-added diced tomatoes, drained
  • 3/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro, divided
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup 1% low-fat milk
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400°.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, bell pepper, and beef; cook 5 minutes or until meat is browned, stirring to crumble. Stir in the salsa, chipotle sauce, beans, and tomatoes; cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in 1/2 cup cilantro. Spoon beef mixture into a 3-quart casserole.

Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 4 ingredients (flour through salt) in a large bowl. Add 1/4 cup cilantro, milk, butter, and egg; stir until well-blended. Spoon the batter over beef mixture; spread evenly. Bake at 400° for 35 minutes or until golden.
