This week we had lots of leftovers that were "re-purposed". One of the ways I used leftover chicken was in this Tamale Casserole. I'm not sure where I got this recipe, but I know it was from the blog world. I saved it on my phone a while back and just now got around to making it. It was quick and easy for a weeknight dinner. We love tamales and this casserole did taste like the real thing. I didn't use the egg substitute, I just used an egg, and I probably wouldn't use the milk next time. There was plenty of moisture from the corn and the green chiles (which I didn't drain).
I had some fresh cilantro that I chopped up and put over the top of each serving along with sour cream and salsa. I think this would also be yummy with taco meat, pulled pork, or leftover roast that you could shred up.
