Tamale Pie

Tamale Piewith Cornbread Crust

Chef Andrea is all about the convenience and ease of a one-dish meal, with one particular requirement: layers of flavors and a variety of textures, to keep every bite interesting. Here, Andrea drew inspiration from Southwestern tamale pie, which layers seasoned beef, cheese, and the masa (or corn) dough of a traditional Mexican tamale. In this recipe, the trickier tamale crust is replaced with crisp, golden, cheesy cornbread.
