Ready in less than 30 minutes, this Tamale Frittata is easy and delicious. Great way to use leftovers. If you like a crispier texture, place cooked frittata in an oven-safe skillet under the broiler for 1 to 2 minute. Perfect for brunch, lunch or dinner.

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 3 to 4 (about 10 ounces total) prepared savory beef or chicken tamales, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 5 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup (5 fluid-ounce can) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
  • 1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Green tomatillo salsa, warmed

Directions

HEAT oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add tamale pieces; cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes or until golden brown.

BEAT eggs and evaporated milk in large bowl until blended. Add to skillet; cover. Cook over medium-low heat for 6 to 8 minutes or until center is set.

TOP with cheese; cover. Remove from heat. Let stand for 2 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve topped with salsa.

Cook’s Tip: If you’d like your cheese broiled instead of melted, place cooked frittata in an oven-safe skillet under the broiler for 1 to 2 minutes or until speckled brown. This frittata can also be made with any leftovers you have: cooked, thinly sliced beef or chicken, cooked corn kernels, cooked zucchini cubes, spinach.
