Tamale Pie for Mexican Feista at #SundaySupper

This is a dish that I hadn’t made for a very long time. Not quite sure why as it is so good and so easy to whip together. I actually got in trouble from Amber as she said why hadn’t you made this for her before because it is so very good!! She gobbled it down and quickly got seconds.

I love Mexican food. There are so many great appetizers/entrees/desserts/drinks that come out of Mexico, the list is endless. I have been to Mexico many times and I have loved my visits every time and especially the food. So come and look at the fabulous list of recipes this #SundaySupper has to offer. They all look great!! So put on your sombrero and pull up a seat senor and senorita!!

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Brown beef in a large saute pan. Then add the rest of the filling ingredients and simmer for 5 min. Place the mixture into a 8x11" pan sprayed lightly with cooking spray.
  2. Mix together the cornmeal and milk and set aside for 5 min. Meanwhile stir together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Stir into the cornmeal mixture the egg and melted butter. Add this mixture to the dry ingredients and stir only to combine, the batter will still be lumpy. Place the batter over the beef mixture.

    This sounds like a perfect weeknight dinner! Will have to give it a try soon and I am so glad that it should be easy to swap items to meet our dietary issues :)

    This is comfort food at it’s finest! I don’t think I’ve seen one #SundaySupper recipe that I would not want on my table. My family would love this :)

    Thank you so much for sharing this recipe Tara. I love tamales and now I don’t have to hunt down the street vendor. I can all the great flavors of a tamale at home!

    I haven’t made a tamale pie in a long either…I think it’s because my daughter didn’t like cornbread for the longest time, so I pretty much forgot about this dish. But I’m fairly certain she eats cornbread now, so I know my husband would love it if I put this on our weekly menu. Yours looks really good!
