Description

Love tamales? Then you simply have to try this recipe for Tamale Casserole which is essentially a giant deconstructed tamale. The first layer of this casserole is the traditional masa mixture that is baked before the addition of the filling. The second layer is a savory poblano chili and chicken filling. The last layer is a mixture of cream and manchego cheese. Cooked until melted, this Tamale Casserole is cheesy, warm, savory, and oh so delicious.
