"Very good! I added a bit more chili pepper and used olives instead of green onion because that is what I had on hand. Even my picky son said it was something he would eat again. Winner!"

"I had been looking for a Tamale Pie recipe without ground beef for my husband. I had tried several other chicken tamale recipes, they were all terrible. This on the other hand, my husband said that this was as good as his mother used to make. That was music to my ears. AWESOME RECIPE! Tastes wonderful!!"
