Tamale Pie

J. White Harris


When I was about 14-years-old I saw this recipe in some magazine and thought it sounded good. I brought it to my mom and asked her to make it. She did and we thought it was good and it became a regular dish on our table. Serve this with green sauce on the side and a salad.
