Tamale Soup Recipe - EasyRecipesCooking.com

My husband gets delicious homemade tamales every Thursday at the school where he works. I always freeze whatever we can’t eat and eventually we get a backlog, so I made up this recipe last night and it turned out great. Most of the measurements (other than the canned goods) are just estimates and can be adjusted according to preference.

Total time: 4 hours 10 minutes

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 4 hours

Yield: 4-6 serving(s)


2 (15 ounce) cans black beans
1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 (6 ounce) can tomato sauce
4 cups chicken broth
1 cup onion, diced
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
1 tablespoon cumin, ground
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
10 -12 frozen tamales (chicken, pork, or beef)
1 cup colby-monterey jack cheese, shredded


  • Combine all ingredients except tamales and cheddar cheese in large crockpot. Cook on low for 4 to 5 hours.
  • Meanwhile, allow tamales to thaw just enough to be able to cut them.
  • About 30 minutes prior to serving, add still-mostly-frozen tamales to crockpot and cook on high for 30 minutes.
  • Serve with cheese sprinkled on top.
