Tamale Jose


  • 2 lbs. ground beef
  • 1 onion
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 cans Hunts tomato sauce
  • 1 cup milk
  • Advertisement

  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1 can olives
  • 1 can drained corn
  • 1 cup grated cheddar or jack cheese (approx)


Brown ground beef and onion until done. Add seasoning, corn, tomato sauce and milk. Simmer about 20 minutes. Slowly stir corn meal into meat mixture. Add olives. Put into casserole and top with cheese. Bake at 325 degrees F for about 40 minutes. You can change this recipe around quite a bit and it will still come out very tasty.

Source: I believe this came from a Hunt's tomato sauce can as that what is written in my handwriting about 40 years ago, and my family still asks for it.
