Chicken Tamale Pie

Loved this recipe….but I made my masa recipe for the base. It was delish and the family loved it. Also, I now do not have to make the dozen of tamales at one time.

Ingredients :
  •     ⅓ cup fat free milk
  •     ¼ cup egg substitute
  •     1½ tablespoon taco seasoning, divided
  •     ¼ teaspoon ground red pepper
  •     1 (14¾ ounce) can cream-style corn
  •     1 (8.5 ounce) box corn muffin mix (such as Jiffy)
  •     1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chiles, drained
  •     1 (10 ounce) can red enchilada sauce - I recommend going with an authentic Mexican brand
  •     2 cups shredded cooked chicken breast
  •     ¾ cup shredded white cheese (I used Raclette - random, I know, but it's what I had on hand, and it ended up being delicious!)
  •     cilantro and crumbled Cotija cheese for topping

Directions :
  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Combine the first 7 ingredients (milk through green chiles), using just ½ tablespoon of the taco seasoning, in a large bowl, stirring just until moist.
  3. Pour mixture into a round pie plate (mine was glass) coated with cooking spray.
  4. Bake at 400° for 20-30 minutes. While corn is baking, toss the chicken in the remaining 1 tablespoon taco seasoning.
  5. When corn is done - it will be just barely set and golden brown - pierce entire surface liberally with a fork (it might stick a little bit to the fork).
  6. Pour enchilada sauce over top.
  7. Top with chicken; sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes or until cheese melts.
  8. Remove from oven; let stand 5 minutes.
  9. Cut into 8 pieces; top each serving with cilantro and Cotija cheese.
