Reviews for Tamale Bake
"Really like the flavor and was super easy to make in a short amount of time."
"We love this recipe. We add a bit more jalapeno than called for and with salsa and sour cream it is wonderful. We make this frequently and it's easy enough for my husband to make when I work late"
"My husband thought this recipe was okay and my kids hated it (they are 3, 4 & 6). My husband thought it was bland. I didn't eat is since I am a vegetarian so I can't really give an opinion."
