Sharron's Story

...just came up with this and made it last night, after looking for a recipe for enchilada casserole using corn or tortilla chips...normally i make it with just "cheese", but my daughter had expressed a desire for some meat, so i opted for an EZ-OUT with fritos and =^.~=


1 bag
chili cheese fritos
6 count pkg
xlnt tamales (can be left out without noticing much difference)
1 medium
can enchilada sauce (28 oz)
lg onion, chopped
1 can(s)
black olives (slice a few for topping)
8 oz
grated cheese, divided
use green enchilada sauce, regular fritos and monterey jack cheese

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 9x13 pan w/ cooking spray.
Put whole bag of fritos in a large bowl.
Unwrap tamales and crumble over fritos. (could use 2 cans tamales in place of XLNT brand)
Add chopped onion, olives and half of cheese.
Pour enchilada sauce over all and stir/fold everything to coat. Turn out into a 9x13 pan (sprayed w/ cooking spray) Top with second half of cheese and sliced olives.
Bake, covered, for approx. 30 minutes or til heated thru. (insert a table knife into center for a few seconds and gauge temp by feeling on lip or back of finger)
Can easily be doubled and baked in a disposable roasting pan, or make a batch of each (red and green sauce) and baked side by side in same pan (won't intermingle).

    Sharron Boerum slboerum - Dec 11, 2011 could also leave them out or use hamburger, i think, and they would be fine...but just in case, XLNT brand tamales are found near the refridgerated pasta in my store (also near cheese and lunchmeat)...hope this helps! :)
