  • More Homemade Tamales


Tamales, tamales, tamales. My girlfriend and I make tamales, have a batch
to make right now. John, to get the filling in the husks (am supposing you
are using corn husks soaked in water), just take a spoonful of filling
mixture and spread about 1/4 inch thick on the husk. Then just sprinkle the
filling on. Then you roll them. We steam with water in the juices from the
meat we boiled to make the filling. You pour the meat juice into the open
ends of the tamales after placing them open-end up in a steamer (don't
panic, wadded up alumunum foil makes a great steamer). The trick is to get
them to stand up and to provide them some protection from the water. (I
could never drop them in a pot of boiling water, they would come apart if
they are fresh) Cover, and steam for about 20 minutes. Let them cool, wrap
in freezer paper, six to a package. Freeze what you don't eat immediately.
To re-heat, throw them in the microwave for five minutes. I promise to give
you our full recipe but I'll have to get it from my friend. It starts like
this: early in the morning mix orange juice and Asti Spumante. Drink. You
are about to have to taste the Massa (yecky old cornmeal and lard) to see
if you have enough chili powder, cumin, salt and meat juice in the Massa.
One must have at least two

Mimosa's before starting. Anyway, I remember the procedure but the
Mimosa's cloud the exact amounts of ingrediants. Promise the full one
