Super Easy Chicken Tamale Casserole

  super easy chicken tamale casserole
Last Sunday, it was time to try something new and this is what we came up with. Casseroles are great because they are super easy to throw together but pack a punch with flavor. I didn’t know how this would turn out but how can you go wrong with these ingredients! Kid friendly recipe, not too spicy but you could take it up a notch, if you love the heat.
1 package corn muffin mix (we used Jiffy)
1 can cream style corn
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 (8 ounce) taco cheese blend, shredded
1 can mild enchilada sauce
3 cups shredded cooked chicken (we used rotisserie)
Garnish with sour cream and lime wedge (optional)

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and spray baking dish with a non stick spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine muffin mix, corn, eggs, milk, chili powder, cumin and 1 cup of the cheese.
  • Spoon into prepared baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes.
  • Pierce casserole with a small knife in about 12 places and spread enchilada sauce over the top. Scatter chicken and remaining cheese over casserole; bake for 20 minutes.
  • Allow to cool for 10 minutes and cut. Garnish!
