The long list of ingredients is misleading because you probably have them on hand! Pastel de choclo in one form or another is popular throughout South America. It is especially popular in Chile, where it is often made with both beef and chicken. Sometimes sliced, hard-boiled eggs are added. Traditionally the pastel is baked in a large oval earthenware dish, or paila, or in several smaller bowls for individual servings. There is cornmeal added to this recipe because North American corn has a lot less starch and it is needed to make the batter properly. Enjoy!
