  • 2 teaspoons vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 small white onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and diced
  • 1 can (10 oz) Old El Paso™ Mild Red Enchilada Sauce
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 1 can (15 oz) Progresso™ Black Beans, drained
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Mexican cheese (divided)
  • 1 pouch (6.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ Cornbread & Muffin Mix
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoon melted butter


  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350°F. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and jalapeno and cook for 5 minutes until the onion is translucent.
  • 2
    Transfer onion and jalapeño mixture to a large mixing bowl. Add enchilada sauce, salsa, chicken, black beans, and 1 cup of Mexican cheese. Stir all ingredients until evenly mixed.
  • 3
    Transfer mixture to a pie plate that has been greased with cooking spray. Pat the mixture down with a spoon so that it is nice and even.
  • 4
    In a separate bowl, whisk together cornbread mix, milk, egg and melted butter until combined and smooth. Then spoon the mixture on top of the enchilada mixture until the entire pie is covered.
  • 5
    Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the cornbread topping is set and the edges are just beginning to brown. Remove the pie, and top with an additional 1/2 cup of shredded cheese. Bake for an additional 3-4 minutes until cheese is melted. Remove and serve immediately.
