Mango Chicken Tamale Pie



I love me some tamales and last night I was craving them. BUT, I don't know how to make tamales! So I did the next best thing and made a tamale pie casserole. Seriously, the tamale topping on this dish is to die for and how can you go wrong with chicken and mangoes? 

Comfort food at its finest. 

Mango Chicken Tamale Pie
Yield: one large 9x13-inch pan (about 8 servings)
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Baking Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: about 1 hour, 10 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

4 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
1 small onion, chopped
2 chilies in adobo sauce, chopped
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 cup mango-peach salsa

{for the tamale topping}

2 1/4 cups yellow corn meal
2 cups water
12 oz. milk
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shredded Mexican cheese
1 dollop cream cheese (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13-inch pan with cooking spray.

Drizzle olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add chopped onions and cook for one minute. Add chopped adobo chilies and cook until onions are translucent. Add black beans, garlic powder, cumin, shredded chicken and mango-peach salsa. Stir until all ingredients are incorporated. Pour into the bottom of prepared pan.

Make the tamale topping. Combine corn meal, water, milk and salt in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently until thickened, about 5-7 minutes. Add shredded cheese and cream cheese and combine until fully incorporated. Pour tamale mixture over the mango-chicken mixture and spread evenly.

Bake in the oven for 40 minutes.

Enjoy!
