Recipe of the Week: Chicken Tamale Casserole

I like tamales, but I have no idea how to make them and it seems really complicated so I found this recipe, which has the flavors of tamales, but it's really easy to make.




Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (4 ounces) preshredded 4-cheese Mexican blend cheese, divided 
  • 1/3 cup fat-free milk 
  • 1/4 cup egg substitute (or one egg)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 (14 3/4-ounce) can cream-style corn
  • 1 (8.5-ounce) box corn muffin mix (such as Martha White)
  • 1 (4-ounce) can chopped green chiles, drained
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 (10-ounce) can red enchilada sauce (such as Old El Paso)
  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken breast 
  • 1/2 cup fat-free sour cream 


Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Combine 1/4 cup cheese and next 7 ingredients (through chiles) in a large bowl, stirring just until moist. Pour mixture into a 13 x 9–inch baking dish coated with cooking spray.
  3. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes or until set. Pierce entire surface liberally with a fork; pour enchilada sauce over top. Top with chicken; sprinkle with remaining 3/4 cup cheese. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes or until cheese melts. Remove from oven; let stand 5 minutes. Cut into 8 pieces; top each serving with 1 tablespoon sour cream.
