Pastel De Choclo (Chilean Corn and Meat Pie)

 

This is an excellent recipe however it is missing several key ingredients which would make it spectacular. Firstly, there is hard boiled egg in the bottom layer and secondly, basil is an essential ingredient which goes into the corn cover. This dish is unbelievably delicious.
