Hamburger Corn Pone Pie -- 13 Smart Points

*** Edited ***  I used 24 Smart Points for the ground beef but after speaking with some other online Weight Watchers, they think I should be using 18 points and count the cooked weight.  I leave that up to you.


12 oz. 80/20 ground beef           24 Smart Points
½ onion, diced
2 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 can Mexican style tomatoes
1 can Ranch Style beans            12 Smart Points
1 recipe corn bread batter*        38 Smart Points

In a 10-12” cast iron skillet, brown meat with onion, add chili powder and Worcestershire sauce. 
Put tomatoes into blender and process until smooth.  Add to the meat mixture along with the beans.  Bring to a boil.  Lower heat and simmer for about 15 minutes, uncovered, to reduce liquid from tomatoes.

Spread the prepared corn bread batter evenly over top of the hot meat mixture.  Bake in preheated 425° oven for 20 minutes or until cornbread is golden brown.  The juice from the meat mixture will break through the corn bread layer while cooking.

To make it spicier, add some diced jalapeno peppers to the cornbread batter.
