Today my slow cooking thursday entry has been inspired by my trying to put together a menu plan for this next couple of weeks.    I wanted to do a Mexican themed meal for my son’s birthday, and so I dug out one of my cookbooks that is mostly mexican foods.   I saw a lot of recipes for tamale pie, and remembered a recipe that I used to make a lot in my crockpot.   I haven’t made it in a while, but it is definitely going on the menu board soon!    I vary this recipe a little by adding diced green and red pepper and onion.    I like to serve this with a dollop of sour cream and shredded lettuce and diced tomatoes. YUMMMYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂     To see more crockpot recipes, or to enter your own, please click on the banner above and hop on over to Sandra’s blog for more Slow Cooking Thursday entries!
