  1. I'm buying some masa for the first time tomorrow to do Pioneer Woman's Chili for my family. I'm going to try this recipe next week. Looks really good.

  2. Oh my goodness does that look good. I will definitely be making this soon. I have a bag of masa that I had no idea what to make I do. Thanks :)

  3. Oh my gosh! This looks soo good. There is always something new out there to learn about cooking and I've learned a lot from you! I've never cooked with the Masa dough. I make something like this but top it with sweet cornbread instead...I can't wait to try this dough!
    Great idea! Thank you for sharing this!

  4. Looks good! I just have to point out that you're cooking like a real Mexican. We always puree our chilies in the blender. :) Love guajillos! :)

  5. Fantastic pie...and that chili sauce is perfection!

  6. I have never seen anything like this before. I wish the computer had "smellivision" . I'll have to try this recipe. Thanks for sharing it. Have a great weekend.

  24. Great recipe. I'm bookmarking this one. I was just looking at the "Taco Pie" another blogger posted and was wondering what I could use instead of cornbread topping. When I saw this a light bulb went off in my head. I bought a big bag of masa to make arepas with, and now I have my answer. Thanks for the incentive and lovely recipe.
