Tamale pie is a simple, spicy casserole everyone in the family will enjoy. This is a sponsored post for Boiron® and PTPA. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
As you know I love Tex-Mex. It’s a side effect of growing up in Texas. The other day I was looking through my pantry deciding what to make for dinner. We are getting ready to move back to Texas (finally!!) and I am trying to use up all the food I have on hand instead of buying more food. To say things are getting creative would be an understatement. Some meals are turning out substantially better than others. I happen to have all these ingredients on hand because I make red chicken enchiladas and taco soup a lot. We make homemade salsa all the time and have a little salsa garden. With all this on hand it made it pretty easy to come up with something tasty and I must say this recipe for Texas tamale pie turned out fantastic!
