Chicken Tamale Bake

Confession....I've never had a tamale before. Don't get me wrong...they look amazing and I would eat one in a hot minute... but I want a real authentic one,  not one from a fast food joint or from the frozen section at the grocery store. In the meantime I'll pretend by eating this delicious Chicken Tamale Bake. Not sure why I am just discovering this recipe because it's been floating all over the internet. Wow, was this ever good! Going on my list of favorites!

Cal 233.2, Carbs 23.6, Fat 8.5, Fiber 1.2, Protein 12.7

1 14 oz. can creamed corn
1 box corn muffin mix (I used Jiffy)
1/3 cup skim milk
1 can enchilada sauce
1 can chopped green chiles
1/4 cup egg beaters
1 tsp. chili powder

1 cup reduced fat shredded jack cheese
1/4 cup crumbled queso fresco
2 cups shredded cooked chicken 
3 green onions, sliced

Preheat oven to 400.

Spray a cooking dish with non stick cooking spray. (I used a pie plate but if you want a thinner crust use a larger dish.

In a bowl combine the chicken and enchilada sauce and set aside. In another bowl, combine the creamed corn, muffin mix, chiles, milk, egg beaters, chili powder, cumin, and ½ cup of the shredded cheese.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until edges are golden brown and the middle is cooked through

Use the back of a wooden spoon and poke holes on the top of the corn bread. 

In a medium bowl, combine the chicken and the enchilada sauce and pour over the top of the baked corn mixture. Sprinkle with remaining 1½ cups of the shredded cheese.

Bake for an additonal 5-10  minutes or until cheese is melted.

Remove from the oven and top with crumbled queso and green onions. Enjoy!
