Chicken Tamale Casserole
1 cup (4 ounces) pre-shredded 4-cheese Mexican blend cheese, divided
1/3 cup fat-free milk
1/4 cup egg substitute
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper or chili powder
1 (14 3/4-ounce) can cream-style corn
1 (8.5-ounce) box corn muffin mix (such as Jiffy mix)
1 (4-ounce) can chopped green chiles, drained
1 (10-ounce) can red enchilada sauce (such as Old El Paso)
2 cups shredded cooked chicken breast
1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
Preheat oven to 400. Combine 1/4 cup cheese and next 7 ingredients (to the cooking spray) in a large bowl, stirring just until moist. Pour mixture into a 13 x 9 inch baking dish coated with cooking spray.
Bake at 400 for 15 minutes or until set. Pierce entire surface liberally with a fork; pour enchilada sauce over top. Top with chicken; sprinkle with remaining 3/4 cup cheese. Bake at 400 for 15 minutes or until cheese melts. Remove from oven; let stand 5 minutes. Cut into 8 pieces; top each serving with 1 tablespoon sour cream.
This Chicken Tamale casserole is a quick and easy swap for more traditional tamales but just as delicious!
