  • A tamale or tamal (Spanish tamal, from Nahuatl tamalli)[1] is a Latin American dish consisting of a starchy dough, often corn-based, which is steamed or boiled in a leaf wrapper. The wrapping is discarded before eating. Tamales can be further filled with meats, cheese, vegetables, chilies or any preparation according to taste, and both the filling and the cooking liquid may be seasoned.

  • Here you go but it's a severals days process if you are doing it by yourself.   I'm starting tomorrow for Christmas Eve tradition.  I would suggest getting the masa at a Mexican grocery store where they have it batches prepared or unprepared masa mix already.
