College Girls Easiest Cheesiest Tamales

What you need: 

corn tostada shells or chips, broken, to taste
1 (15 ounce) can beans (I used kidney because I had them), undrained
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 cup salsa, more as needed
oil to coat pan and drizzle on top

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease the bottom of a baking pan (9x13, or adjust pan and ingredients for your serving needs).
2. Put broken shells or corn chips on the bottom. Pour beans on top. Evenly distribute the nutritional yeast over the top. Add salt, pepper, and hot sauce. Pour as much or as little salsa over the top as you want.
3. Drizzle a little more oil over it (evenly). Bake for about 10-15 minutes depending on quantity.
Mmm! It amazed me how good it was, or maybe I am too hungry!!!

Hmm, not exactly tamales, but it was quick, easy and yummy.  I substituted Mexican tofu scramble http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=35569.0 instead of plain beans and that made it a little more interesting.  I loved the crushed chips/yeast/salsa mixture on top.  This is a good foundational recipe, open for taste variations.

Glad you liked it anyway! Not sure what to call it but the idea was to use what is available and make it taste delicious! Thanks for the response! ;)b Your dish looks amazing BTW

This is pretty good! I added onions to it and I had some Dayia  cheddar. Smells like a cheese enchilada.
