  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. In medium microwavable bowl, place polenta and water. Microwave uncovered on High 30 to 60 seconds or until soft enough to mash. Mash with fork until mixture looks like coarse crumbs.
  • 2
    Separate dough into 8 biscuits. Press or roll each to form 5-inch round. Spoon and press 2 tablespoons polenta mixture onto each round to within 1/2 inch of edge. Sprinkle each with 2 teaspoons chopped chiles. Place 1 strip cheese on each round; fold dough over cheese strip, folding in sides and pinching dough well to seal.
  • 3
    In shallow dish, place cornmeal. Lightly spray each tamale with cooking spray; coat with cornmeal. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  • 4
    Bake about 15 minutes or until light golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Expert Tips

  • Serve with salsa verde, sour cream or chopped fresh cilantro.
  • Be sure to seal dough well to prevent cheese from melting out during baking.
