“This is a very nice, tasty tamale pie that is quick and easy to throw together with ingredients most of us keep on hand. I like this one especially because the cornmeal is incorporated throughout the filling. Yum, so flavorful. I used ground beef, but the original recipe called for ground turkey, which would work well; we're a beef family so that's the only reason for that change. On the top, I used a 4-cheese Mexican Blend. Perfection all the way. I hope you enjoy it.”
