    2 tbsp. melted butter
    1/2 c. sour cream
    1 tbsp. vegetable oil
    1 onion, chopped

Preheat oven to 350° and grease an 8-x-8" pan with nonstick cooking spray.
In a large bowl, mix together corn muffin mix, egg, sour cream, and melted butter. Spread batter into pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Let cool.
In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add onion and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic then add ground beef and season with cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper. Cook until no longer pink and drain fat. Return skillet to heat and add enchilada sauce. Simmer for 5 minutes then remove from heat.
