Tamale Ring - An Easy, Quick and Delicious Dinner

A few weeks ago an online friend sent me a recipe to try.  It sounded so good I tried it right away and it was delicious! I asked her~Julia~ if I could share her recipe and she said yes.  I could hardly wait to share it with you.  This is a quick, easily and delicious meal that everyone in our family absolutely loved and we all want it again.  Julia told me how good the leftovers are but we almost never have leftovers in our house so I will trust her with that.
