  • Prep Time: 10 mins

  • Total Time: 40 mins


  • 6 Del Real Foods Pork Tamales, husks removed
  • Del Real Foods Salsa de Molcajete Verde
  • 1 ½ cups Del Real Foods Arroz con Vegetales
  • 1 ½ cups corn
  • 1 ½ cups shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 2 green bell peppers, diced
  • 2 red bell peppers, diced
  • ½ red onion, minced
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp salt


Preheat oven to 375-degrees. While oven preheats, remove husks from 6 Pork Tamales. Roughly chop all 6 and spread them over the bottom of a 9×13 casserole dish. Cover with 1.5 cups Arroz, corn, and 1 cup of shredded cheese. Set aside. Dice the peppers and mince the onion before tossing in oil. Add cumin and chili powder, then further toss to evenly coat. Next, add veggies to a large nonstick skillet and cook on medium-high, stirring and resting until onions and peppers start browning on the outside. Remove from heat and add veggies to the casserole dish, spreading evenly over tamale, rice, and cheese. Top with remaining cheese and place on upper middle rack of oven. Bake for 30 minutes, until cheese begins to bubble. Remove, allow to cool, then plate and garnish with Salsa de Molcajete Verde, avocado, cilantro and sour cream.


When it’s ready to serve, top with sour cream, cubed avocado, and diced tomatoes. Pair with a pitcher of spicy jalapeño margaritas or refreshing agua fresca.
