The amount of spice in this recipe is just right for my family, who prefers things on the mild side. Make it once with these measurements---then spice it up a little more if you like!—Ruth Aden, Polson, Montana

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 11, 2013

When I tasted the meat mixture to correct the seasoning, it was very acidic because of all the tomato and the flavor was bland. So I added another TBS of chili powder and 1 tsp more of the garlic powder, and cayenne pepper to taste. I also eliminated the salt. I added a tsp of sugar to cut the acid in the tomatoes, made as directed otherwise and it turned out perfect.

Leaving out the 1//4 tsp salt reduces the sodium content to 254 mg sodium. A big difference. I will try this using corn tortillas.

My family loved this! It's misnamed, being nothing like a tamale, but I prefer this. I used the frozen tortillas you bake at home, which taste way better than pre-made tortillas. Everyone said they definitely want this again, but would prefer the olives be left out. Added to my recipe box!
