Pastel De Choclo

Recipe by Rita1652

A Chilean Corn and meat pie!! This I think is more authentic then the recipe I gave 5 stars to Susan O'Grady Pastel de Choclo. Her's is alot easier! Serve with a green salad. Chileans also serve it with extra powdered sugar on top at serving.

this is an interesting dish.i used frozen corn and 1/2 c skim milk. i also used 3 cooked boneless skinnless chicken breasts, sliced in thirds. the recipe doesn't specify whether or not to precook the chicken, just the beef, but the texture was fine, good family fare. i think it could have used some more spice, we added some at the table.
