What a wonderful time I’ve had today celebrating Christmas with family. First, dinner with my in-laws is always enjoyable. We share good food and good conversation, then load up with leftovers to eat later.

This evening our kids and grand kids came to the house. We open our gifts from each other, eat, then play games. We laugh a lot as we play and tease each other. My grand-son-in-law taught us a new game tonight called 4-on-the-couch. It was challenging and a lot of fun. Of course, no matter what we play, we have fun.

We made too much food, though. Meatballs, Mexican cornbread, Tamale dip, candies, and more. Tamale Dip is easy to make and good for any event.

Here is my recipe for Tamale Dip.

  • 1 can tamales
  • 1 can chili, no beans
  • 1 can Rotel
  • ¼ pound Velveeta

Remove paper from tamales and smash them. Keep the juice. Add chili and Rotel. Chunk up the Velveeta and add to mixture. Heat until cheese is melted. Serve with Tostitos chips, corn chips, or whatever you prefer.
