Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 1/2 cups corn kernels, fresh or frozen
  • 1 can (14.5-ounces) diced tomatoes, drained
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 4 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 cup sliced green olives with pimento (optional)
  • 4 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, shredded (about 1 cup shredded)
  • Martha White Mexican Style Cornbread and Muffin Mix
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 egg beaten

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Prepare the Filling: In a large skillet over medium-high heat, warm the oil until hot. Add the onion, green pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  3. Reduce the heat to medium and add the ground beef to the pan. Cook, stirring occasionally to break up the meat, until browned, for about 5 to 10 minutes. Once the meat is browned, add the onion mixture back to the pan. Stir in the corn, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, chili powder, cumin and salt. Stir well. Bring to a simmer, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand while preparing the cornbread topping.
  4. Prepare the Cornbread Topping: In a bowl, whisk together the cornbread mix, milk and egg, until smooth.
  5. Assemble and Bake the Pie: Stir the olives and shredded cheese into the beef mixture and pour it into a 9x13-inch baking dish, smoothing the top. Pour the cornbread batter over the filling, using a spatula to spread it into an even layer. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow the pie to rest for 15 minutes before serving.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Medium onions sliced into thick rings
  • ½ c Almond flour
  • ½ c Grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 oz. Crushed pork rind crumbs
  • 1 tsp Garlic powder
  • Red pepper to taste
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 Eggs beaten
  • Oil for frying

Instructions:

  1. Slice two medium sized onions into thick rings. You can make the rings of your onions as thick or thin as you desire.
  2. Beat the eggs, and place them in a shallow bowl.
  3. Place the almond flour, pork rind crumbs, and parmesan cheese in a bowl. Add in the garlic, red pepper flakes if desired, as well as salt and black pepper to taste.
  4. Begin to heat several inches of keto approved cooking oil such as olive oil or avocado oil on the stove in a deep pot or skillet.
  5. Dip each onion ring first into the egg mixture to coat it well, and then into the flour mixture.
  6. Once the oil is hot, place 5-6 onion rings into the heated oil at a time, and cook for 2-4 minutes according to your preferred level of doneness.
  7. Repeat the cooking process with the remaining onion rings, and place them on a rack or paper towel lined plate to cool off and to remove excess oil.
  8. Alternatively, you can bake the onion rings at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes, keeping an eye on them to ensure they come out golden brown.
