    Braunda's Note:

    Back in 1964 my mother and father was into the PTA at school. They took over the schools lunch room to make these for PTA funds. As I have been told was alway a wonderful turn out. I am not sure of the amount it makes. But I do know this is fun for all to get everone to help.

      I grew up in Houston, Tx. and never knew there was any kind of tamales other than the texmex I was used to. This recipe sounds like the ones I've been searching for. I'm looking forward to getting the family together to try them. Thanks for the recipe!
