Tamale Pie


2 (15oz) canned tamales - place in medium size casserole dish with sauce, remove paper wrappers, break-up tamales into “chunks”
(Hormel is the only brand I know of near me)

1 small can corn - drain juice, add to dish

1 Lb ground beef - brown ground beef, drain grease, add taco or enchilada seasoning (tbsp?), mix well

Onion - (optional) chop 1/4 cup, sauté until translucent, add to mixture

Garlic - (optional) mince 1-2 cloves, add to mixture

Grated cheese (Mexican blend) - add 1/2 to 3/4 cup to mixture

Gently fold all ingredients until well blended, add taco/enchilada seasoning to taste, top with grated cheese

Place in a preheated 350deg oven for 30 minutes

Some enjoy crumbled tortilla chips sprinkled over the top when served
It’s a great quick and easy recipe. But you’re right, I get some killer homemade tamales made by actual Mexican’s around here 😋

When we first moved here my friend would ship them to me every few months, what they call tamales here, are NOT.
Finally after hurricane Gustave some real Mexicans moved in and we've been good ever since.
