Slow Cooker Tamale Pie

Slow Cooker Tamale Pie

I made Slow Cooker Tamale Pie recently and it was an easy and cheap meal that was good for on the go! The spices can be added or subtracted depending on taste and it’s definitely one of those comfort food meals that’s easy to throw together in a pinch. In fact I had all the ingredients bar one!
