There’s nothing more frustrating for food bloggers than a tasty recipe that doesn’t photograph well. This Slow Cooked Tamale Casserole from Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures is an example of hard-to-photograph food, and Lynn even says, “It may not be the prettiest dinner you have ever served, but I think your family will love it.” I’d certainly agree that this tamale casserole with ground beef, cornmeal, tomatoes, olives, and grated cheese sounds delicious for a keep-the-house-cool dinner. Lynn uses purchased taco seasoning, but I’d use a homemade version (like Kalyn’s Taco Seasoning) for a from-scratch recipe.
Instant Pot Mexican Casserole from Cooking with Curls may not have Tamale Pie in the recipe title, but with corn chips, corn, beans, and cheese, this has all the flavors that make tamale pie so popular for a dinner idea.
Slow Cooker Tamale Pie with Cornbread Crust from Skinny Ms. has all the traditional tamale pie flavors and a from-scratch cornbread crust that sounds delicious!
