No Photo


  • 24 cooked beef and pork tamales (husks removed)
  • 4 cups 3-cheese blend (grated Cheddar, mozzarella and Jack cheeses)
  • 28 ounces tomatoes with diced green chiles (Ro*Tel)
  • 2 cups chopped onions
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dark chili powder
  • 1 to 3 teaspoons kosher salt, to taste


  1. In a large bowl, crumble tamales by hand into bite-size pieces. (Do not use a mixer or food processor or the stuffing will be too dense.)
  2. Toss all remaining ingredients and add to the tamales.
  3. Place in a large greased baking pan or two 9-inch ovenproof dishes and bake at 350 degrees F for 20-30 minutes, until brown and hot throughout.

Serves 12.
