    December is for Tamales~

    Fri Nov 30, 2012 10:51 am Groupie

    A tamale is a dumpling made of masa (hominy flour) dough filled with meats, vegetables, cheese, nuts or fruits, and then steamed in a natural wrapper (typically a corn husk or banana leaf).

    Tamales are typically not made every day due to the labor involved. They are usually made for special occasions like the Day of the Dead, Christmas, New Year's or just about any other family/holiday celebration. But don't let that scare you off, they are well worth the effort and like most recipes, you can make extras for a later meal or two.
