Chicken Tamale Pie
Tamales, but with a Southern twist. We pay homage to the tamale's corn husk by using a corn muffin base for this innovative Chicken Tamale Pie.This season, we’re all about savory pies. From the whimsical Cheeseburger Pie to the classic Southern Tomato Pie with a Buttermilk-Parmesan Crust, these savory dishes are a perfect way to pack a whole meal into one pie tin. They pay homage to the long-standing Southern strategy of baking anything and everything into a casserole, and we couldn’t be more thrilled about this new take on the tradition. This surprisingly simple Chicken Tamale Pie is a great weeknight dinner solution. Ditch the tired taco night for this new take on tamales, served as a spoonable one-skillet pie. With a corn muffin base, a layer of slightly-spicy chicken tamale mixture, and cilantro, sour cream, and bubbling, golden cheese to top it all off, this pie is a stunning main dish fit for any occasion. It’s kid-friendly and incorporates easy packet mixes (such as cornbread muffin mix and taco seasoning that you can buy at any grocery store) to make this an easy, hearty dinner fix.
