Hi there!~ Welcome to Home Pressure Cooking where you will find not only pressure cooking recipes, but Air Fryer and now I am on the Ninja Foodi kick! I love the versatility of my Ninja Foodi. From pressure cooking, to broil, bake, crisp or roast all in one pot. It’s a beautiful thing. Today I am sharing a quick and easy Tamale pie in the Ninja Foodi.

If you have been around for a while you know I absolutely love Martha White mixes. Most call for either water or milk and they never fail me or my family. We just love Martha. You can find a few of my other Martha White recipes HERE. Walmart carries a variety and you more than likely can find them at your Walmart in the baking section. The mix I used for the Tamale pie in the Ninja Foodi is a buttermilk biscuit. It was the first time I had noticed it and of course I picked one up.

Tamale Pie in the Ninja Foodi

I happened to notice a little recipe on the back of the bag. It was for Tamale pie. It called for chili (ex. Hormel) but I did not have that in the pantry. I did however, have a can of black beans and a can of Hunts seasoned chili sauce. I simply improvised and mixed the two together and it was perfect for my recipe.

It was like eating chili and biscuits all in one. I should have made two of them, but it was only my son and myself home for dinner tonight so it was actually the perfect meal for the two of us. I used my 3 cup flower pan. It was about the prettiest little Tamale pie EVA!~ I was a little concerned it would fall apart when I flipped it over. NO issues at all. Of course I had to let it cool for a bit. The pan gets hot. I always use a towel to wrap and then flip over. Makes it easier and you don’t burn your hands.  Topped with a little Franks hot sauce drizzled over a few pedals, it was perfection. I made a side of cucumber salad to go along with it.

I love that this little mini flower bundlette pan is total portion control.

I had me three little pedals of Tamale pie. You can find all the recipes I have made to date using the mini flower bundlette pan HERE.

Recipe on how to make Tamale pie in the Ninja Foodi

Tamale pie in the Ninja Foodi


  • 6 oz Martha White Buttermilk pack you can use a jiffy cornbread as substitute
  • 1 cup Black beans
  • 1 cup Hunts Chili seasoned sauce or Hormel chili can
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/1/2 cups Shredded Mexican cheese


  • First mix buttermilk biscuit pack according to directions on the package. Set aside. In a separate bowl mix beans (drained) and seasoned chili sauce. Lightly spray bottom of pan with non-stick cooking spray. Pour the biscuit batter on the bottom of the pan just a thin layer to start. Add bean and chili mixture. Top with cheese, and repeat. This 3 cup pan gets two layers. Put one cup of water in the pot. Set pan on a trivet and lower down. Set to High Pressure for 25 minutes. Once time is up, do a quick release. Then lower down the Air fryer lid and add cheese on top, set to broil for 4-5 minutes. The cheese should be nice, bubbly and brown when finished. Removed pan from pot and set to cool for at least 10 minutes. Invert on plate, top with hot sauce and enjoy with a side salad
