Ideas for using up masa harina? Tamale pie?

Parsnipity | Jun 26, 2012 11:27 AM

I bought a 2kilo bag of maseca brand masa but after looking up some tamale recipes, I just don't have time to get into a lengthy project and don't like the amount of lard/shortening called for in most. Does anyone have a casserole or tamale pie type recipe that would let me use the masa and just bake the whole thing? Most of the tamale pie recipes I can find call for instant cornbread mix, not true masa. I can figure something out for filling- just looking for logistics or suggestions on the dough.
