Tamale Peppers

READY IN: 1hr
Recipe by Starrynews

Colorful and delicious dish! I am marking serving sizes for use as an entree, but we also enjoy to serve this as a side by serving them halved. This is based off of a recipe card I picked up in the grocery. Use the salsa of your preferred heat level to adjust it to your taste, or use pepperjack cheese to add some extra zip.

I love all the ingredients in this, and love the color and delightful presentation that this recipe offers! The taste wasn't quite what I expected....not sure what was missing. Maybe some jalapenos? Love the cornmeal....to make it like a tamale. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT7!
