This was so good, I even had some. My dad just loves tamales (from the can.) He lives alone and I often go over to cook up some meals for him. I knew he would want tamales, that night so wanted to dress them up abit. Thanks for sharing.

A SUPER easy dinner to say the least. I used fresh, but frozen, tamales removed from their husks. I cooked them on low and after 4 hours all of the sauce was gone, so I poured some enchilada sauce over the top and cooked them for another 2 hours. Wished I would have put even MORE enchilada sauce on top. These were very tasty.
