Smoke the Corn

  • Set pit to 375 °F. In a large bowl combine thawed corn, parkay and Grill Your Ass Off Claymore Cajun Seasoning. Place the corn mixture on a foil lined baking sheet and smoke for 25 minutes, stirring half way through. Remove from pit and set aside ½ cup of the corn for the cornbread mixture.

Make the filling

  • In a large non stick skillet, cook ground beef over medium-high heat for 6-8 minutes, until browned. Use a colander to strain grease from browned ground beef and set aside.
  • In the same skillet, add olive oil and diced onions. Cook over medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add bell peppers, half of the jalapenos and garlic to the skillet. Continue cooking for 2-3 minutes. Once the vegetables are cooked, add ground beef back to the skillet. Mix in hatch peppers, enchilada sauce and Grill Your Ass Off Pop Smoke Taco & Fajita Seasoning and continue cooking for 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and fold in 1 cup of shredded cheese.

Make the Cornbread Mixture

  • In a large bowl, combine cornbread, egg, milk, ½ cup shredded cheese and the remainder of the jalapenos.

Cook the Pie

  • Set the pit to 400 °F degrees.
  • Add ground beef mixture to the pie tins only filling 3/4 full. Then, fill the remainder of the pie tins with the cornbread mixture, leaving a little room at the top for the cornbread to rise. Garnish with a jalapeno slice.
  • Put the Texas Pie on the pit and cook for 35-40 minutes, until the cornbread is golden brown. Remove from the pit, let cool and enjoy!
