Beef Tamale Pie

This recipe edited from Taste of Home is one of those all-in-one meals that lets the crock-pot do its thing.  It’s quite healthy and tastes delicious.  You can easily use a different cornbread recipe in place of this one.  Just keep an eye on it, especially the first time you try it, so it doesn’t overcook.
