Slow Cooker Month: Hot & Slow Tamales

It’s Day #5!

Today’s recipe is a quick Tex-Mex almost-dump recipe — Hot and Slow Tamales. Tasty but requires little prep on your part.

Isn’t it true that some days you want a hot, satisfying meal that you almost don’t do anything for?  And if you buy pre-cut onions and pre-shredded cheese, no chopping or grating at all!

Just a little chip crushing…that can be fun!

Of course, you can dress this up if you want — use homemade chili, add frozen corn, or any other veggies that you like to include in your chili.

Either way, make it quick and just enjoy!
