This was so yummy and so easy. Kids loved it. I use 2 cans of chili with beans, and 2 cans of tamales. I used zatarain's spanish rice mix and topped it with mexican blend cheese instead of the cheddar. Baked in a 13x9.

Great, quick, recipe. The first I made it I used one can of beef tamales...after that I have been using 2 cans. Great dish for leftovers too.
