This is a family favorite, but I'm sooooo glad I didn't have to type it in. I recommend refrigerating and de-fatting after step 3. Then it's ready to eat as soon as it's heated. If you're worried about the fat in the chili and the tamales, you could dump them in before you refrigerate. The broth should be hot enough to bring the additional fat to the top.
