Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This tamale dip is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. Your family and friends will think you worked for hours, but this dip is a cinch to throw together. It's a little spicy, cheesy, and full of Mexican flavor. The big chunks of tamales are so yummy with the corn chips. This is a hearty dip that's great for game day, movie night or a nice appetizer for your next taco night.
