Unfortunately for me, chicken tamales are not easy to make. I can't claim that this tamale pie is authentic at all but it certainly has amazing flavor and the cornmeal pie crust is delicious. It's sweeter than a tamale but aside from that drawback, it's a good fusion-y, easy substitute for the real deal.
I used a real egg instead of 1/4 cup of egg substitute, Trader Joe's cornbread mix, mozzarella cheese, and doubled the taco seasoning. Actually, my husband did because he made it! Kudos!
