Crock Pot Beef Tamale Pie

READY IN: 6hrs 15mins

I love that this recipe calls for the corn muffin mix so that you don't have to wrestle around trying to find your cornbread recipe. Where the recipe calls for enchilada sauce, feel free to use your own or your favorite.

I made this for my coworkers, and they raved about it. It easily is my favorite mexican dish. The taste is amazing, and I eat with tortilla chips- with a hint of lime- along with the salsa for a heavenly end!
