A healthier version of a beef tamale--and in a convenient casserole form. (even better as leftovers)

Top Review by absentminded chef

Really enjoyed this! My 4 yo son loves Mexican, and he was able to help me make it. I used ground beef this time, but will try turkey another time. This will be a great recipe for when I have to take a meal to a friend with a new baby, etc!
