I gotta be honest with you here. The reason I love tamale pie so much is pretty much the same reason I adore Shepherd's Pie...the topping.
Shepherd's pie may have buttery, creamy, mashed potatoes on top but MAN does tamale pie give it a run for it's money. A cheesy cornbread topping?! 🙋🏼♀️🙋🏼♀️🙋🏼♀️.
Oh and SUPER win, you make the whole thing in one skillet!
Ah well actually you do have to mix up the cornbread in a couple bowls but it all cooks up in one skillet so I'm counting it as a win. Easy peezy right??
