Recipe by True Texas

From CD Kitchen or www.cdkitchen.com. We liked the unusal combination of tamales and chicken with the chili. I will cut the tamales in at least 2" inches pieces the next time, to make it easier to dish up.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup finely crushed corn chips
  • 1 (15 ounce) can tamales, cut in 1-inch pcs
  • 1 (10 ounce) can chili without beans
  • 1 12 cups cooked chicken, cut up pcs
  • 1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 (4 ounce) canchopped green chilies
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Sprinkle corn chips on bottom of an 8" baking pan.
  2. Unwrap tamales; arrange over corn chips. (This is where I cut in 1" or 2" pieces).
  3. Combine all the rest of the ingredients except cheese; mix well.
  4. Spoon over tamales. Bake for 20 minutes at 400°F
  5. Sprinkle with cheese; continue baking till cheese melts. Serve with sour cream.
