Hearty Tamale Pie

I love comfort food just as much as the next person, probably more! After making this recipe, I discovered that comfort food can be healthy too. An excellent source of protein and nutrition, this is a recipe you can feel good about making and eating. Leaves you full for a long time without that heavy tired feeling afterwards. And don't be intimidated by a few of these ingredients, I found them all at my local grocery store.


Total Time: About an hour total

Yield: 6 servings

Source: Modified from a recipe in the book; "Clean Eating For Busy Families".

  6. In another bowl, combine your remaining topping ingredients and mix well.
  7. Add your wet ingredients to your dry just until combined.
