    Ingredients

    Cornbread crust:

    Pie:

    Instructions

    • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a 12-inch cast iron skillet with cooking spray or a small amount of vegetable oil.
    • In a medium size mixing bowl, whisk cornbread mix, melted butter, milk and egg. Do not not mix; the batter will have lumps, this is normal. Pour batter into your cast iron skillet. Bake for 15 minutes, or until the top is lightly brown.
    • Combine garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, dried oregano, paprika, fine sea salt and black pepper. Toss minced chipotle peppers with spice mixture, shredded chicken and black beans.
    • Poke many holes in the cornbread base using a fork, the more holes, the more places for delicious enchilada sauce to hide!
    • Pour 1 cup of enchilada sauce over cornbread base. Top with chicken mixture. Finally, top with shredded cheese.
    • Bake for an additional 10 minutes or until cheese melts. Remove and allow to sit for 5 minutes. 
    • Top with fresh cilantro and scallions, serve with fresh lime wedges, spritz and enjoy your Chicken Enchilada Pie!
