“My sister and I have always loved tamale pie, but only had it at pot lucks. Our mothers version was from a box, and that was good too. Unfortunatly, they stopped making the kind in a box, at least they dont sell it here anymore. So with some trial and error we came up with this. Our families love it, and it is even better the next day. Very simple to make, and so tasty!”
