Chicken Tamale Casserole
Traditionally, tamales are a time-consuming meal to make if you are making from scratch. But this recipe can be ready in under 45 minutes (or less if you take advantage of some meal prep opportunities!)
Instead of using high sodium rotisserie chicken for my shredded chicken, I decided to cook fresh chicken breast in my CrockPot on high for 3-4 hours until it is easy enough to shred.
Any why not top with cherry tomatoes?? Adds some extra vitamin A & C and potassium, but they also add a pop of color to the dish to make it look pretty. And you can’t get away from a Mexican dish without cheese…just look for the “reduced-fat” or “made with part-skim” varieties to lessen your intake of saturated fat.
