Here's a great recipe that's quick to make, but not short on taste. Canned beef tamales with onions and Cheddar. Mmmm!

Don't let the negitive comments scare you away. I used frozen tamales (not canned) and it turned out great. It's not something you'd want to serve for company unless you having a Super Bowl party:), but my kids and husband loved it. My son especially did and he doesn't like much. Try it!

I made this one evening earlier in the week. Very easy and oh so GOOD. Will certainly be making this one again and again. I will add a small (single serving size) can of whole kernel corn next time, think it will add to this excellent dish, may even add some sliced black olives also ...

This was great! I used frozen tamales (based on the reviews I read) and scaled down the recipe down to three servings. I also used yellow onions instead of green & mexican blend cheese. I then topped it off with jack cheese, green onions and sliced olives. It was very delicious! Thanks for sharing Stinger.
