Slow Cooker Tamale Pie


Tamales are a delicious Mexican dish. If I had a list of my favorite Mexican entrees; Tamales would certainly be on there lol. I don’t know what it is, but they taste even better during Christmas. My most liked tradition is when my family and I go to my Aunt Sandra’s on Christmas day and eat some of her amazing  tamales. Yum yum!!!

I too enjoy pie, but I have never tried tamale pie so when I saw the title of the recipe I was very inspired on cooking this recipe. As always like all of the dishes that I’ve prepared, it’s delicious and super easy to make.
