This was wonderful. I did however, put sugar in the mix for the out covering to give a favor. My husband said, this is delicious. I used 5 fresh corn and 5 chicken breasts and it made 23 tamales. I put the chicken broth from the chicken breasts to the mixture after it was the consistency of the peanut butter or buttercream frosting as you said. I noticed if you turned the corn sideways and rolled the husk it did not split and came off whole. I will make on a regular bases. It didn't take that long to make. But, I found out to steam it for exactly two hours. I did not think it was done because the tamale is white, Ah!! Ah!! this old woman learned something, because it didn't have the spices in the mixture and my husband loved it this way. Thank you for sharing. Chef #220151
