Directions

  • 1 Rinse corn husks and remove silk. Cover husks with warm water; let stand at least 2 hours until softened.
  • 2 In food processor or blender, place 1/2 cup almonds. Cover and process until finely ground; set aside. In 1 1/2-quart saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Cook onion and garlic in oil about 8 minutes, stirring frequently, until onion is tender. Stir in tomato sauce, paprika, red chile and red pepper. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in ground almonds.
  • 3 In medium bowl, mix 1/2 cup of the sauce, the turkey, slivered almonds, raisins, bell pepper and green chiles. Set aside. Reserve remaining sauce.
  • 4 Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 10-inch springform pan. In large bowl, beat all dough ingredients with electric mixer on low speed, scraping bowl constantly, until well blended. Beat on medium speed 1 minute.
  • 5 Drain corn husks; pat dry. Line pan with corn husks, extending pointed ends of husks over side of pan. Spread half of the dough over husks on bottom of pan; cover with turkey mixture. Spread remaining dough over turkey mixture up to edge of pan. Cover top of pan with piece of heavy-duty foil, 15 inches long, shaping down over side of pan (pointed ends of corn husks will bend down against outside of pan).
  • 6 Bake about 1 1/2 hours or until dough is set and slightly dry. Carefully remove side of pan. Serve tamale pie with remaining warm sauce and sour cream.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

This is one big tamale! Typically, tamales are individually wrapped corn husk packets filled with savory mixtures. Instead, this pie uses one large corn husk packet.

Remember to weight down the corn husks while they are soaking.
