Crockpot Corn Tamale Casserole


  • 1½ cups onion, chopped
  • 2 – 3 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1½ cups cornmeal

  1. Sauté onions in olive oil over medium heat until the onions are soft.

  3. Add to a large bowl: sautéed onions, cornmeal, diced tomatoes with chilies, beans, corn, water, eggs, ¼ cup black olives, garlic, cumin, and chili powder.
  4. Mix ingredients together and add to the Crockpot.
  5. Sprinkle tomatoes and ¼ cup olives over the mixture.
  6. Cook on high 4 – 5½ hours until the edges are lightly browned. Do not overcook.
  7. Serve.


  1. Great served with salsa, sour cream, and guacamole.
  2. You can use any white beans. I often use white kidney beans or great northern beans.
  3. Adjust the amount of black olives to your taste.
  4. Check the Crockpot a little early to make sure it does not burn.
  5. You can cut this recipe in half, just decrease the cooking time by 30 minutes.
  6. You can also use a 15 ounce can of diced tomatoes and a 4 ounce can of diced green chilies in place of a 10 ounce can of diced tomatoes and green chilies.
