    Rita~'s Note:

    A spin off of the Mexican Tamale! Great for POT LUCK! Serve with a salad a side of sour cream and guacamole and you have a nice meal. A lot easier then stuffing corn husks. DON'T FORGET THE MARGARITAS OR A TALL COLD BEER!

      This was really good. However, I did half the cornbread topping mixture since I've had similar things before and it always seemed like too much. Half of the topping was perfect. Even DH (who doesn't like casseroles), liked it. I left out the olives, bell pepper (don't really like) and tomato paste (didn't have), added in a little rotel I had leftover and some brine from jar of pickled jalapenos just to use it up. Will make again! Thanks so much for posting!!

      I gave this a five star. At first I had a problem with the cornbread topping, but I spoke with the poster and she informed me that she meant to post 1 1/4 Cup of yogurt instead of 1/8 cup. The taste is great. I made it just as it was posted. Didn't need any extras.

      I'm giving it a 4 because I adjusted things so I could use masa harina. All in all not bad! I'm going to keep searching until I find a pie that really melts on your tongue. But the filling was great. I also wish there was a cooking temp given? But thanks for sharing!
