The filling ingredients in this casserole will satisfy hearty appetites. You can garnish individual servings with sliced ripe olives and serve with tortilla chips.—Cecily Gates, Santa Ana, California

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 can (15 ounces) chili with beans
  • 1 jar (13-1/2 ounces) tamales
  • 1 can (15-1/4 ounces) whole kernel corn, drained
  • 4 slices process American cheese

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Spoon into a greased 9-in. square baking dish; top with chili.
  2. Remove papers from tamales; cut each into six slices. Arrange over chili. Sprinkle with corn and top with cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30 minutes or until heated through.
To give Quick Tamale Casserole more of a taco taste, add an envelope of taco seasoning and 3/4 cup water to the ground beef after browning and draining.
