Growing up, we used to eat hot tamale sandwiches…..recipe from my granddad……now I’m thinking I’ll have to make one soon…..
Heat canned tamales (I know, sounds nasty, but like a White Castle, they are an acquired taste…..
Take 2-3 canned tamales, depending on size, and unwrapped, on a slice of regular Beefsteak rye bread
Top with a slice of cheese (optional), and (this is important) some ketchup and some shakes of Texas Pete’s hot sauce.
(Grandpa always used American cheese, and the ketchup-hot sauce mixture. Last time I made it, I used pepper jack and salsa.)
Add the top slice of rye bread, smoosh it down a bit, cut in half, and enjoy.
Wash it down with either an RC cola, or a Pabst Blue Ribbon beer. Don’t forget to salt the beer.
Believe it or not, these are pretty good!
I’m going to have to make one, and toast my dear old grand dad!
