Greg's Favorite Tamale Casserole

Recipe by karadale

This is my hubby's favorite Casserole. I usually make this when we barbecue as a side dish but it can be a main course if you like. Sooo good and don't be cheap with the cheese. ENJOY!!!

This is yummy. We are trying to eat less meat so I substituted a can of fat-free refried beans for the ground beef the second time I made it, used petite diced tomatoes with chipolte peppers and mixed the cheese in the the other ingredients to distribute the cheese more evenly through the dish. Both versions were outstanding. Thanks for sharing.
