T: TAMALE Pie Review

A chili-type filling topped with cornbread mixture makes for a quick & delicious meal. The left-overs heat up well.

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

  1.  The filling was tasty. 
  2. The corn bread topping was just okay.
  3. 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.
  4. Cooking it at 425 degrees for 25 minutes was too long. I should have checked it at 20 minutes.
  5. It served up great as leftovers.
  6. I added one cup of black beans and it was delish.

Go here to read why I am making 55 pies in 52 weeks. . . . Pie Count . . . 7 made . . .  48 to go.

Your Turn . . .

  • Have you made a Tamale Pie before? If yes, how different or similar was your recipe?
  • What would you add to the Tips and Observations?
  • What was the last pie you made?
