Skillet Tamale Pie (pg. 119)

My husband and I both thought this dish wasn't bad...good, but not great. Not sure I will be making this again. I timed myself and it took me 42 minutes to make, from the time I started cutting up the onion to the time I pulled it out of the oven. I've made quite a few recipes from this book but have yet to finish in 30 minutes. I think I'm a slow cutter/mincer/dicer and I always read and re-read recipes, ha! My picture isn't all that great but I took it to show how I could not manage to spread the cornbread batter all the way to the edges. That, and my batter (Jiffy Brand, one they suggest) was pretty lumpy and was not easy to spread.

So, overall....good, but don't think it'll make our list of regulars.
