Cornbread Tamale Pie Bake

Laurie Colvin


I come from a family of awesome cooks. Not fancy food, just good homecooked food. This is another of my favs that my mom used to make. All you need with this dish is a nice fresh salad and maybe some fresh fruit and you're good to go! Even though this recipe has a lot of ingredients the instructions are pretty easy.
