Rated 4 out of 5 by from I added some corn to the meat mix. I added some corn to the meat mix. Also, added a little more cream of wheat so I'd have a dryer mixture. When it was finished baking, I let it set for a few minutes before serving. It was delicious. Next time I'll add some cornmeal to the cream of wheat to give it some more texture and add more salt and pepper.

I tried the topping mixture before I put it on and I was pleasantly surprised. My husband loved it, but I didn't tell what it was until the end. He was surprised, too. We served it with sour cream. I think I will add Mexicorn next time to finish it off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely loved this recipe. Absolutely loved this recipe. My whole family enjoyed it as well. I used ground turkey rather than beef and added some green onions into the mix as well. It made for a great meal, along with salad, tortilla chips and extra salsa on the side. My family keeps asking me when I'm going to make it again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This takes more prep work than I usually want to do and it's worth it. This takes more prep work than I usually want to do and it's worth it. I changed the spices a bit for my husband's taste. Don't expect a dry cornbread-like topping. It turns out like what you'd find in a tamale. (I guess that's where the title came from.) You must try this recipe. Just Delicious!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Honestly, it was kind of blah. Honestly, it was kind of blah. My husband decided fewer green chilis in the topping would help and some chopped onion and more spices to punch up the ground beef black bean mixture.
