    I cannot wait to try this. I have made lots of tamale pie dishes in the past (six children!), but with just my husband and I now, I fall back on my crock pot a lot. This will be a hit I'm sure.

    I recently broke the crock from my 6 qt slow cooker. Do you think this would work in a 4 qt?

    Seasun - it should also work in a 4 qt cooker. Maybe half the recipe....?
