Cheese with Roasted Chile Tamales (Tamales de Rajas Con Queso) ‘Tis the season for tamales and these tamales are one of my favorites. These tamales are filled with roasted green chile and cheese. The suero (whey) is what makes this recipe uniquely ours and gives the green chile a creamy tang and perfect saltiness. This dish can be served as an appetizer or topping. We often make this dish for Thanksgiving. It tastes delicious over turkey and mashed potatoes.
