  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1 package (8.5 ounces) corn muffin mix
  • 1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt or light sour cream
  • 1 can (4.25 ounces) diced green chilies, undrained

  4. Mix corn muffin mix, yogurt or sour cream, green chilies, and egg until combined. Wash hands after touching raw eggs. Spread on top of the meat and vegetable mixture.
  5. Bake until corn muffin topping is golden brown and set, about 30 minutes. Cut into 6 slices.
