2 (15 ounce) cans
green onions, chopped
shredded Cheddar cheese
crushed tortilla chips
2 (16 ounce) cans
chili without beans
Don't let the negitive comments scare you away. I used frozen tamales (not canned) and it turned out great. It's not something you'd want to serve for company unless you having a Super Bowl party:), but my kids and husband loved it. My son especially did and he doesn't like much. Try it!
This is so easy and quick. I don't cut the tamales up. I do prefer the tamales you find in the freezer section over the canned. I also put some shredded monteray jack on the top. This was always a favorite dish of mine when I was growing up, my tastes have grown up quite a bit so I place this in the corn dog and beanie weanie category for foodstuffs, but all in all a decent meal that will fill you up. My guys love this stuff as much as something I spent all day on.
I made this one evening earlier in the week.
Very easy and oh so GOOD. Will certainly be making this one again and again. I will add a small (single serving size) can of whole kernel corn next time, think it will add to this excellent dish, may even add some sliced black olives also ...
This was great! I used frozen tamales (based on the reviews I read) and scaled down the recipe down to three servings. I also used yellow onions instead of green & mexican blend cheese. I then topped it off with jack cheese, green onions and sliced olives. It was very delicious! Thanks for sharing Stinger.
Great Recipe thank you for a really simple,great tasting,and very filling dish. My Husband and I loved it! I was out of tortilla chips but had fritos on hand also added more cheese (mexican blend) and also topped with black olives along with the green onions and cheddar cheese stated in your recipe only because we like mexican food with extra cheese and black olives. Great next day leftovers. I have and will make again. THANK- YOU! Stinger
Yum! Family loved it....I added corn, black olives and sour cream :-) Good stuff!
I followed this recipe as written but did not like the flavor of the canned tamales. Perhaps it was the brand. I will try it again but I will use frozen(thawed)tamales and the appropriate amount of a frozen chili brick (thawed) in place of the canned chili with beans. I am sure it will be tastier. This is quick and easy and that is a big plus!
This is a quick and tasty dish. The only changes that I made were that I used one can of chili w/o beans and one with. Also I left out the onions since my boyfriend thinks he'll die instantaneously if he eats one and I wish I were kidding. This is a good recipe to mix and match ingredients to your liking.
