Skillet Tamale Pie (page 119)

This was beyond delicious! My husband & I both agreed that this was our favorite recipe thus far. The seasonings melted together for an extraordinary burst of flavor with a delicious aroma. The cornbread topping was the easiest way to get that traditional tamale taste without killing yourself for it. For the cheese, I substituted the 1 cup of cheddar with ½ cup cheddar & ½ cup habanero cheddar. I didn’t want to waste my left over cilantro from another dish, so I served the extra on top with the sour cream. I am 100% sure that I will make this dinner again.

Yummy...I make this as a casserole that takes an hour to cook- can't wait to try it as a 30 min quick recipe!

So thrilled to hear it was so good. I am cooking it tomorrow night as my first recipe of the new cookbook. Hopefully mine will come out as great as yours did. :)
