How to Make TUESDAY TAMALE PIE

Step-by-Step

  1. Use the directions on the bag for water to masa ratio. You want enough paste for a thin crust patted into a greased 13x9 casserole. I add a pinch or two of salt to the mix, too.
  2. Brown ground beef. Add seasonings per taco mix packet reducing the water by half. Stir in on can of enchilada sauce. Remove from heat.
  3. Sprinkle shredded cheese on top of crust. I use both cheddar and cotija but you can use a Mexican blend if you prefer. There's no wrong cheese!
  4. Pour on beans and corn.
  5. Layer meat on top of beans and corn.
  6. Top by pouring the queso over the meat layer (yes... this is really cheesy!) Go as hot as you and your family likes. You can even add a jalapeno layer if you want.
  7. Top off with a generous amount of crushed tortilla chips.
  8. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until browned and bubbling.
