If you love tamales but don't like the work that they require, this casserole is for you. It's super easy to put together and the taste is phenomenal. This has become one of my favorite casseroles to fix in a pinch.

How to Make CHICKEN TAMALE CASSEROLE

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
