Nice version of the standard frito pie. Loved the addition of the tamales. Thanks for sharing. Made for Chef Alphabet Soup Tag.

This is just sooo goood. I took it to a potluck and everyone loved it. I forgot to rate it (months ago - sorry) but my daughter is having a pot luck and I thought about this recipe again! Love the addition of the tamales.

Frito Chili Pie has been one of my favorites for years. The tamales add a nice addition to regular Frito Chili Pie. Quick and easy. Thanks islandgirl77551. Bullwinkle.

My family loved this. I have very picky kids, I never know what they are going to eat. I made this one night last week and they ate the entire pan in one night. It was super easy to prepare and one that I will do again. Thanks for sharing.

This was a great fast and easy recipe to fix. I used homemade tamales that I had frozen. Used two cans of turkey chili and 2% cheese. Great recipe!

A+ for ease of preparation...however I didn't enjoy the canned tamales flavor (maybe just the brand - I had Hormel). I thought that the inside Fritos got soggy during baking - and the leftovers didn't reheat well at all! No big loss, since the ingredients were inexpensive and the recipe was so easy, however I don't think I'll make this again.

My family has been making this recipe for many years now.I love it and so do my children...DD requests it often.I use a 9x13 pan and double everything. We also garnish it with extra fritos. Thanks!

Another simple dinner for busy (or lazy) nights! :) I used frozen tamales (thawed in the microwave and corn husks removed) and increased the chili to 2 cans. I was craving some comfort food, and this hit the spot. We served it up with shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes and onions, sour cream and Spicy Guacamole (Spicy Guacamole). Mmmm. Thanks for posting.

I really hoped my family would like this but was disappointed with the results. I followed the recipe exactly but the top layer was very dried out. It certainly was easy to prepare. I'm sorry it didn't work for us.
