Hey friends! Hope you are all having a fantastic day! If not, I hope I can make it better, by sharing this scrumptious Tamale Pie dip recipe. Our family has always loved tamales for as long as I can remember. I mean, we are Mexican (even if we don’t look like it!!). The problem is, tamales are a lot of work and mostly because when we make them, we like to make at least 20-30 dozen (we have a big family and usually only make them once a year). With that in mind, we were happy to find this recipe because it had the flavors of tamales but in a dip form. It was also SOO much easier to make!! Another reason why we loved the recipe is because we love trying out new dips with tortilla chips. We have them so often and although we enjoy our classic dip recipes, it’s nice to change it up. Our family loved this recipe so much that this was gone in no time. The hubby even declared it his new favorite dip recipe. You know that means something considering he’s an avid dipper. 😉

Hopefully, you can try this out and will enjoy as much as we did. We already decided it would be on the menu for Cinco de Mayo. 🙂 As with most dips, it is simple to put together and a flavorful, yummy dip to share at your next party. Here is the printable recipe:
