From time to time, I cook a pork shoulder and pull the pork to be used with a few different meals. This is a recipe I came up with that may not be a traditional tamale but the ingredients meet the criteria and it is a filling comfort food. There is no reason why you couldn't substitute shredded chicken or ground beef for the pork.

My husband and I loved this meal enough that we will definitely get through all the leftovers! I made a few minor tweaks, mostly just based on personal preferences and what I had on hand: -I seasoned the pork before I cooked it (in the crock pot) with onion powder, garlic powder, garlic salt and cumin. I would probably do this again. -I used diced tomatoes with green chilies, about half a 10-ounce can, instead of just green chilies. -I made my own cornbread instead of using a mix. It covered the top generously. -I left off the cheese, and didn't miss it. We'll be adding this to our rotation! Read More

I really didn’t enjoy pulling pork for this recipe, but I did it anyway. Next time I would chop up pork, chicken or use ground beef. This will be lunches/dinners for the next few days. Unless I decide to box some up for my local servers. Read More

Made it my own by substituting red enchilada sauce with green; adding 2 fresh jalapeños and sautéed with onions lots of garlic chipotle chili powder cumin s&p before adding to pork; omitting black olives and using a whole cans of white kernel corn and whole can of black beans. I know a lot of subs and changes but made it perfect for our Texas tastes and will totally make again! Read More

Due to the shortage of some grocery items, I had to make some adjustments but it was still very good. Read More
