came from myrecipes.com. This Chicken Tamale casserole is a quick and easy swap for more traditional tamales - but just as delicious! "I came up with this Mexican dish to satisfy my cravings for the tamales I had at Mexican restaurants when I was growing up in Houston. Homemade tamale recipes are too time-consuming to prepare for weeknight meals, but I discovered a corn bread mix approximates the flavor." ?Risė Minton, Smyrna, GA
