chicken-chili tamale pie

I made this Chicken Chili-Tamale Pie a while ago when I happened to have a little bit of blue cornmeal I was trying to finish off. Of course I took pictures of it (or it didn’t happen, right?), but it took me forever to find them in my photostream. I knew I’d made it while it was still cold out, but the photo evidence was nowhere to be found. Well, turns out I had to really keep scrolling back, because I did make it in November…of 2018! What a warped sense of time (and zero photo organizational skills) I have. 

This savory pie does require you to make two recipes in one…a fully-cooked chili and then a cornbread batter to top it. Having some leftover (or rotisserie) cooked chicken or turkey to use up will shave some time. You could also just serve-up the chili as-is, since it has plenty of veggies, spice and beans, in addition to the shredded chicken. The cornbread blanket is a fun and tasty twist though. I’ll try to not let another two and a half years fly by before I make it again!

For the recipe, see Everyday Dorie by Dorie Greenspan, and head over to Cook the Book Fridays to see how the group liked this one.

  1. That is pretty funny Steph! The challenge of this recipe was finding the photo haha! Good job…yours looks more tasty than mine.

  2. Your descriptions of a time warp and a tasty twist make me laugh. It’s a fun recipe for sure.

  3. Impressive that you found the photo from 3 years ago. My how time flies. We are buying a Costco roasted chicken to cheat on time and we will have plenty of meals for next week. I am looking forward to this one.

  4. Oh that looks good with the avocado – definitely would lighten it up a bit! Looks so pretty!

  5. Ohhh this looks like the perfect way to make a weeknight dinner much more exciting!
