I always loved tamale pie as a kid, fortunately it was often served in our school cafeteria. This recipe, like the one I grew up with, has a thinner cornmeal based topping that includes cheese. It has a light, velvety texture that forms a cozy blanket of goodness over the filling. Tamale pie is a holdover from America's first flush of romance with Mexican cuisine. The love affair hasn't let up — not with the lure of cornbread, cheese, and chili, even when made with turkey.
