    Jill Johnston's Note:

    One of favourite comfort food! Flavourful meat base with smooth cheesy spoon bread topping - yum. I don't know where the recipe came from but it's been with me for more than 30 years. I like to double the topping for a real comforting meal. The dish can be prepared and stored in the fridge ready to pop into the oven for a delicious after work meal.

      Was ok but very bland. I used cheddar cheese and couldn't taste it at all. The cornbread topping did not remind me at all of a tamale but more like a pancake. For leftovers I put salsa on the plate then the pie then topped with more cheese and reheated.
