TAMALE-CHILI CASSEROLE – THE HE-MAN SUPPER

Well, the wife was out, running around on me again tonight (no not that…a softball game for the granddaughter), so I was on my own. That is usually pretty dangerous since I usually go on carb-overload when she is away!

So, that’s exactly what happened, but you know, it was darn good!

I stole this off the back of a Hormel Tamale can, so it isn’t original Mushy cooking, but hey, I’ve still got a hurt shoulder, remember?

Take a baking dish, one with a top, preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and then layer the dish as follows:

- pour in a can of chili without beans
- open a can of tamales and line them up on top of the chili (don’t forget to remove the paper)
- add a layer of chopped onions and jalapeño peppers
- cover all that with a thick layer of cheddar or coby cheese

Place the covered dish in the oven for 30 minutes or until hot!

That’s it…unless you want to line the edges of your bowl with Ritz Crackers as I did! More carbs…yummm! Some Frito chips would have been better, but hey, Mushy works with what he has!

I would too. That looks like something my mom would make, on a night when she wanted to go something easy.

And the cave man is officially dead, or just on a lengthy hiatus?

I'm still seeking comfort in my food...the pain is still with me. I'm concerned that I may have started rehab too late.

I remember making something like that in high school. My family is hispanic, so it would have been a sin to have can tamales in the house. Needless to say, when I went to the home of my friends, I was first in the canned tamale line...
