Easy Chicken Tamale Casserole

Every Christmas we have tamales as a tradition but I could eat them every week. I never pass up someone selling tamales outside a grocery store. I love beef, pork, chicken and jalapeno cheese tamales. Tamales are a dish of seasoned meat wrapped in masa and steamed in corn husks. I've made tamales before, but they're very time consuming especially, on a weeknight. However, tamale casserole has become a family favorite in my household. You can call this comfort food a casserole or a tamale pie, doesn't matter. The options are endless. It can be made from beef, turkey, chicken, and you can use chile verde sauce instead of red enchilada sauce. This chicken tamale casserole is oozing with cheese and sauce, it's sure to become a frequent winter meal in your household.  Ingredients: 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded 4-cheese Mexican blend divided. 1/3 cup milk 1 egg 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper 1 (14 3/4-ounce) can cream-style corn 1 (8 ounce) box corn muffin
