A quick and fun recipe for game night. Tamale Pie. What with the Dallas Mav's in the playoffs and baseball season in full gear, Tamale Pie is easy and delicious, perfect for game night with the fam or the friends! Here is your recipe: Let's Go Mavericks!
A dozen Tamales from Dallas Tortilla & Tamale Factory
1 bag Dallas Tortilla & Tamale Factory Chips
1 red or green salsa from of course, Dallas Tortilla
1 8oz can of Rotel or a cup fresh cut tomatoes
1 stick Velveeta Cheese or Rico Can Cheese ( 8-10 oz)
Jar of jalapenos
I use plastic Nacho Boats but you can substitute bowels or paper plates.
Shuck the tamales and break into pieces of 2-3. Put aside in bowel. Put a blanket of chips on the bottom of your container. Spoon a bit of cheese on the chips, add several pieces of the tamale. Drizzle more cheese, then a smaller drizzle of salsa ( Your choice red or green)
I prefer red. Top with tomatoes and jalapenos.
I prefer the Rico Cheese since the Velveeta sticks, does not heat as well and hardens up too fast!
Makes 8-15 servings.
Total Cost : $23.50
Cheap enough to afford some beer to go with!
A good meal on game night. Priceless
