I love tamales! But from what I hear, they are pretty labor intensive to make. This delicious casserole combines all the wonderful flavors of tamales without all the work. It’s no substitute for the real thing, of course, but it’s pretty satisfying in it’s own right.
I often use a rotisserie chicken in this recipe, but leftover chicken would be great too. Shredded pork, or even ground beef would be tasty too. This was so easy to put together and the whole family loved it. My husband, who doesn’t even like tamales, came back for seconds.
