It's Tuesday again. Time for sharing you best recipes. Queen is on the ball and already has one up. Be sure to check it out, Lemon Chicken, it sounds yummy and easy. Just the way I like them. And Lisa has a yummy ice cream cake recipe up today too.

Tamale Enchilada Casserole

You will need:
Grated cheddar cheese
Grated mozzarella cheese
Grated Monterrey Jack cheese
8 large tamales cut in half (Winco has fresh ones in the deli that are good)

2 (15.5 oz.) cans chili with beans
1 (10.5 oz.) can enchilada sauce
½ c. tomatoes with green chilies
1 (4 oz.) can diced green chilies
1 green onion, chopped
Use any large cooking dish, slow cookers are good, or Dutch oven.
Line half of the tamales in dish, and then add half of the chili mixture. Sprinkle with 3 kinds of grated cheese. Add another layer of tamales and more sauce and more cheese. Bake at 350 until bubbly and cheese is melted.

I sprinkle the green onions on the casserole after baking.

This is my Mother-In-Law's recipe and I love it. It's great to use in the dutch oven when camping too.

*****If you have a tried and true recipe, leave a comment with the recipe title here, then post the recipe on your blog so we can all check it out.*****
