Tamale Pie

Cheesy Beef Tamale Pie

This Tamale Pie will have you saying Holy Tamale, I want some more! This is a great weeknight recipe for when you’re busy and just need to throw something together fast but don’t wanna miss out on big flavor. One of our favorite things about this Tamale Pie is much like a normal Tamale, you can really customize the protein in this. You could swap out 1 pound of the beef for a pound of chorizo, or swap it out for some shredded chicken or pork. You could even add some cooked black beans if you’re wanting something more vegetarian friendly. 

Another great thing about this Tamale Pie is that you can really control that heat if you want something a little spicier. We used Dan-O’s Original but you could try Dan-O’s Spicy for some smoky heat or Dan-O’s Chipotle for some additional smokey southwestern flair. You could also sub the Jalapenos for a Haberno or something even hotter. One thing we recommend with this Tamale pie is some good old fashioned hot sauce! We love to use Valentina on this, it’s the perfect amount of heat for this dish. We know you’ll love it too!
