Busy weekdays call for satisfying meals and simple preparation. This hearty tamale casserole is a terrific one dish meal. The spice in the beefy corn filling can be hot or mild based on your personal preference. The savory filling is perfectly complimented by the sweet green chili cornbread topping. It makes for a delicious and stress-free weekday fiesta!
