Post Tamale and Frito Pie

Tamale and Frito Pie
  • 1 can (1 pound) chili or about 3 cups homemade chili
  • 2 cups regular size Fritos
  • 6 tamales, removed from the corn husks (see note)
  • 4 ounces Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeno peppers, shredded
Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Spray a 7 x 11-inch baking dish with non-stick spray. Heat the chili in a saucepan until it just comes to a boil. Remove from the heat. Crumble the Fritos and spread in the bottom of the baking dish. Lay the tamales on top of the Fritos. Cover with the hot chili.

Bake uncovered 20 minutes. Sprinkle with the shredded cheese and bake 5 to 10 minutes more, until the cheese melts and the mixture is bubbly.

Yields 2 servings. The recipe may be doubled. Note: Canned tamales may be used if nothing else is available, although the results will be different. If frozen tamales in the shuck are used, thaw them before using.
