Keto Tamale Pie

This weeks recipe is Keto Tamala Pie, it's a Keto take on a classic Tex Mex dish.  We absolutely loved this recipe and we are sure your family will as well.
Tamale pie is a pie and casserole dish in the cuisine of the southwest, or Tex-Mex style. It is prepared with a cornmeal or masa crust and ingredients typically used in tamales. It has been described as a comfort food, and is generally carb heavy, but we have lightened it using low carb ingredients..
