I chose this recipe because I'm doing my own private Zaar World Tour. It's hard for me to review, since I only had a taste. My family of 5 men ate it up and had mixed reactions. Overall they seemed to like it, some saying it was "really good" and others so-so. I couldn't find aji panca chiles so I used a combination of other chiles including chipotle as another reviewer suggested. I don't think it really made six servings, and it took a bit longer than the 10 minutes of prep time. I think the sugar could have easily been eliminated in the corn crust. Thanks for posting.
I made 1 serving of this for Buddha and he raved about it! My prep was a bit different, I saute'd the meat with the onion and spices all together. I then placed it into our little 5" springorm pan. I processed the corn until it was thick (about 1 minute) so there was no need to heat it to thicken. This made for a very simple meat pie recipe. Buddha loved the sweetness from the corn mixed with the heat of ground Chipolte that I used in lieu of aji panca chile. I was out of olives, but he said it would probably taste great with the olives, and perhaps some chopped jalepeno too. Thanks for a great recipe. :)
Excellent recipe. seems easy enough. We will use it again. sandy
