The second installment of our “Easy Family Comfort Dishes” blog this week is Tamale Pie.
And this would even be considered a one pan wonder.
What is Tamale Pie…. For those who who are unfamiliar?
Tamale Pie is ground beef, perfectly seasoned with Mexican spices, peppers, onions, and topped with cheese and a crispy cornbread topping.
For the CORN BREAD TOPPING, we will be linking our dear friends recipe, with a step by step instruction video for the ABSOLUTE BEST KETO CORNBREAD.
TACO SEASONING INGREDIENTS:
2 TBSP chili powder
4.5 tsp Sazon seasoning (our recipe) or 3 pkts of Goya Sazon (if your keto allows)
1 tsp Adobo seasoning (our recipe) or 1 tsp Goya Adobo seasoning
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
