1Place half of the diced onions in a 4-quart electric slow cooker.
2Top with half each of the salsa, the chili, beans and olives.
3Place 4 or 5 of the tamales on top.
4Cover the tamales with half of the chili strips.
5Repeat the layers, ending with the remaining chili strips.
6Cover and cook on the low setting 6 1/2 to 7 hours.

If you are using frozen tamales, the wrappers will be easier to remove if you microwave them for a few seconds first.
Also, if using frozen tamales, increase cooking time about 1 hour.
