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....?

Hello... I'm just learning crockpot cookery and I think I'll have to try this one out. Wonder how a half-cup of well-soaked traditional Mexican black beans'd do in place of the olives? Can't stand olives, I'm afraid, but I bet the beans'd work, and as I live in AZ they're plentiful. Thanks again!

My hubby doesn't like olives or onions, so I just leave them out. Recipe tastes ok this way too.
