Hands-down this Gluten-free Tamale Pie is my husband’s favorite.  It is easy to make and very filling!  I use Gluten-free Pamela’s Cornbread & Muffin Mix (12oz) for this gluten-free recipe, but you can use any cornbread mix you have (gluten-free or not).  This recipe needs to be made in dish deep enough for the cornbread and tamale meat sauce topping.   I use 2.5-qt Round (8-1/2” diam) Casserole CorningWare dish and as you can see from the picture it is filled to the very top.  A 9×13 casserole dish would work too but the cornbread layer would be thinner.  I prefer a thick layer of cornbread; either way its YUMMY!

Gluten-free Tamale Pie

I was looking for more ground beef dinner ideas when I came across the Tamale Pie idea. I decided to make my own easy version of Tamale Pie by using Pamela’s Gluten-Free Cornbread Mix and a modified version of my homemade enchilada meat sauce. This Tamale Pie is truly an easy one dish dinner!
