Making Tamales with the Family

with one comment

Tamales are not low carb, but delicious. Today, we had an old fashioned "Tamalada" (tamale making party), at my sister in law’s house. We had 11 ladies making tamales.  A few of the men pitched in. It was an experience. Here I am, putting the masa on a corn shuck.
Here’s my Darlin Dan, putting the meat filling on the masa. After they steamed in a large pot for about 2 hours………Some very delicious homemade tamales are ready to be devoured.
Several dozen tamales were made. We made beef, bean, meat with chile, and cheese with jalapeno. Now, I can understand why tamales are selling for around $7 a dozen. What a labor of love!
