Tamale Pie

This is a great quarantine option since most of the ingredients are canned. The only things to chop are bell pepper, jalapeno, and onion. All three of those items can last pretty long. Always buy as unripe as possible, and using a pepper you bought 6 days ago should still be fine.


What I changed:

  • Used red bell pepper and jalapeno instead of green pepper

  • Used diced tomatoes without chilis

  • Used almond milk instead of cow milk

  • Used Bob's Red Mill egg replacer instead of a real egg
