Easy Torta de Tamale with H-E-B Primo Picks

Easy Torta de Tamale with H-E-B Primo Picks


  • Mi Tienda Tamales (I suggest the cheese or chicken ones)
  • Mi Tienda Pollo con Chille Verde
  • 1 can H-E-B Charro beans
  • 1 pack H-E-B Mexican Blend cheese
  • 1/4 cup Texas Pure Flour (I used bread flower, but all purpose will work too)
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • Sour Cream (for topping)
  • Green onions (for topping)


  1. I took the peppers and onions and sauteed them in a dutch oven. Then I added in the chicken and gave it a stir. I covered the pot and stirred the chicken occasionally until it was done. After it was finished, I removed the chicken and made a gravy out of the juices. To do that, I just melted some butter in the pot, then slowly whisked in the flour. Once all the flour was added, I slowly whisked in the juices from the chicken mixture. Cook it until it boils, then lower the temperature. Then I mixed the chicken back in and poured the mixture into a baking dish. I topped it with some HEB Borracho beans and then threw in some HEB mexican cheese. This is when things got ridiculous. I added some Mi Tienda Tamales on top and finished it off with some more cheese. I baked it in the oven until the cheese got a nice brown color to it.
  2. I topped it with sour cream and green onions for color and extra flavor.

I'm a thirty-something lifestyle blogger who tries not to take life too seriously. I think laughing and running are the cure to everything especially when its done in a new city. I think a balanced diet is important, and that they're much easier when they include chocolate. :)

  1. Now, I’m not a huge fan of zucchini but I’m pretty sure nearly everything taste better with some good pasta sauce! Haha I’m willing to give this a try! Plus it’s super simple!


  2. Did you par-boil/cook the eggplant prior to chopping it up? I don’t cook it a lot, but it seems that eggplant takes longer to cook versus zucchini.
    What a sinfully easy dish—never tell anyone how easy it is!
