Green Chile Cheese Tamale Filling


  • 1 1/2 cups green tomatillo salsa
  • 4 poblano chiles, roasted, peeled, seeded and cut into 1/2 inch strips
  • 1 pound Mexican cheese or Monterey jack cheese (about 3 cups), cut into 1/2 inch cubes


  1. In large bowl combine 1/2 cup of the salsa and the remaining ingredients. (Reserve 1/2 of salsa to add to the masa.)
  2. Serve the remaining 1/2 cup of the salsa alongside the finished tamales.

This recipe makes enough filling for approximately 1 dozen tamales. Double, triple or quadruple to desired amount.
