      I actually used the main filling part of this (minus the cheese) as a filling for vegan tamales. It was a great start for making those. I can't comment on the whole recipe as written but will say THANK YOU for the idea for a tamale that didn't require meat.

      This pie has a wonderful flavor, my husband and I just love it. Because there are only two of us, I baked it in two smaller dishes, which turned out very well. There is a problem with the liquidy issue right after it's been baked. However, I made it in the morning and put it in the fridge all day for dinner. The pie had enough time to set, and was just fine. This pie is worth the effort. It's VERY flavorful.
