Canned beef tamales and cooked chicken are combined in this easy, hearty, Southwestern themed casserole.

INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):


  • In a skillet over medium heat, fry the bacon until evenly brown and crisp. Drain, crumble, and set aside.

  • In a large bowl, mix the tamales, chicken, corn, tomatoes, raisins, and olives. Season with chili powder and salt. Transfer to the prepared casserole dish. Dot with butter. In a separate bowl, mix the chicken broth and Worcestershire sauce. Pour over the casserole.
