Every year at the holidays, my family makes traditional tamales; because they are a bit of work, we like to make a whole pile of them and gorge our way through the new year.
It involves lots of folding, tying, prepping ingredients, and steaming.
You’ll never eat anything more tasty. There’s nothing better than masa. Our varieties include some with meat (like chicken and beef) and vegetarian delights like green chiles and cheese and beans.
