Cheesy Tamale Casserole Recipe: This Quick Frito Pie Recipe Invited Tamales to the Party

I scored some tamales at the farmers markets this weekend. After raiding my pantry and fridge, this tamale pie recipe with chili and corn chips is what I came up with.

Canned chili works fine, but, of course, it would be better with homemade chili like this five-ingredient beer chili recipe. A drizzling of green sauce added a refreshing touch to the rich dish. (Try this easy spicy serrano and avocado sauce recipe.) Enjoy!

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 to 25 minutes
Total Time: 25 to 30 minutes

Servings: varies


Here's how to make it:

Lightly oil a baking dish (size will depend on how many tamales you're using). Lay the tamales in the dish.

Spoon the chili over the top. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 15 minutes.

Sprinkle the cheese over the top and then add some corn chips. You can add some chopped onion, too, if desired. Bake another 5 to 10 minutes.

Garnish with chopped onion and jalapenos.
