Bon Appetit had a Tamale pie recipe that used mole in the meat component. It was very good. I have all my Bon Appetits...slowly scanning them and getting rid of the magazines. Too much paper. I have stacks to go (I try to do two or three magazines/week).

CWS, I had to do that (the magazines, that is) with a couple decades of Gourmet, a few years of Saveur, and two beading subscriptions saved over five years. Not only a "too much stuff" thing, but talk about a fire hazard! For the food magazines, most recipes I can find on-line. The beading books I took out patterns and photos and fit a huge shelf's worth in a few file folders. But it takes guts to get rid of stuff!

The tamale pie? My husband prefers a sort of corn meal mush to cornbread, and some might like that if they don't care for corn bread (sort of like polenta). This is often his birthday meal request!
