The perfect combination of Mexican-style corn, taco seasoning and corn meal creates this wonderful, aromatic meal. You can either serve alone, or just add a salad.

This is a nice change to the normal tamale pie recipes. The only problem I had was that my taco seasoning didn't call for water so I suspect that's why it wouldn't thicken up - just stayed watery. I had even put only half the water the recipe called for. I'd suggest using your own judgement on how much water your taco seasoning requires.
