Ranch Tamale Pie

This is a spin off of a recipe from Cooking Light. It's a great comfort food fix and you don't totally blow your diet. Instead of making the cornbread, store bought cornbread mixes work great and they are fast.

This was pretty good - much better the next day after the flavors had time to meld. Will definately make again. Thanks!
