      I had never made a tamale pie before and really liked it. Made it for a small group and they all liked it. I cooked it longer than 30 minutes, closer to 50. Thought I wouldn't like the olives but couldn't taste. I added frozen corn and cut up green pepper and 1 jalepeno. Very good with the chicken.

      This was just like a great tamale pie I had when I was younger! Thumbs up all around the table - from the meat eaters, anyway. Thank you for sharing this!
