T: TAMALE Pie Review
Not all pies have to be sweet in order to be enjoyed. Savory is yummy, especially a savory tamale pie. My mom used to make one when we were kids. I don’t have that recipe any more – maybe my sista does.
So I used this tamale pie recipe.
Yes, this pie, with its cornmeal crust, is filling and quick to prepare – 15 minutes quick. This pie was okay, but it didn’t have quite the taste I remember.
Tips and Observations
- The filling was tasty.
- The corn bread topping was just okay.
- Next time I make a Tamale Pie (and there will be a next time), I will find a recipe that uses eggs, less salt, and adds leavening for the cornbread part of the pie.
- Cooking it at 425 degrees for 25 minutes was too long. I should have checked it at 20 minutes.
- It served up great as leftovers.
- I added one cup of black beans and it was delish.
