One Skillet Mexican Tamale Pie Recipe

I don’t think there is ever a time I am not in the mood for Mexican food.  It is one of our all time favorites and this One Skillet Mexican Tamale Pie is always a hit.

We have an assortment of cast iron skillets and I totally need to use them more in the oven so I am on a mission to do just that. Oh and, hey listen.  They get hot.  Like, reeeally hot (I’m a genius, I know) and they stay really hot for longer than this gal realized.

I may have almost sacrificed a finger to bring you this recipe.
