Taco Tamale Pie – ★★★★★


I’m always weary of recipes that come straight from big corporations marketing theirs and others’ products. This recipe, however was pleasantly AMAZING and took me for quite a surprise. The flavor was perfectly spicy and paired wonderfully with the cornbread topping. I also loved how easy this recipe was. It is definitely an on-the-go weeknight recipe packed with flavor. Perry gave five stars and here is why:

“This dinner reminds me of the Mexican inspired casseroles my mom used to make when I was a kid. It has lots and lots of flavor and I couldn’t stop spooning more from the dish after my second helping. The best part of this dish is the cornbread topping. It balances out the spice and genuinely gives a great tamale flavor. All in all this recipe is an honest five stars.”
