Great tamale type pie. I thought it would be too tomatey with 2 cans of tomatoes and tomatoe paste, but it wasn't at all. Good flavor and great cornbread crust, it browned and cooked through perfectly. The only changes I made were to cut back a little on the fat; used half the oil and did not add cheese to the cornbread crust, but did add 2 tsp. sugar to it. Served with CL Jalapeno-Lime Cole Slaw; great meal.
