      Five stars, more if I could! I wondered about all that vinegar for my hubby's taste, (I love vinegar, he doesn't), but oh wow, this recipe is a keeper. We both loved it. I wasn't sure exactly what to do about the polenta, so I ended up frying it in patties and pouring the rest over it before baking. I love recipes where the chicken is cooked with the skin on, then removed. It saves on some of the fat, but still gives all the chicken flavor. This was just delicious! I will make this again.

      Today, Feb. 2, 2013 is the first time I try to make tamal de olla Paname?o...this recipe made it easy for me to follow...At first I thought it was too hard to make but once I got it going it started to become easier... We are having a get together with a group of friends from diverse ethnicities and each one of us have to bring tamales from their country and I was worried about until I found this great and easy recipe...Also since it's call tamal de "olla" o "caldero", I decided to present my dish in an "olla" just to be a little original %u263A. I will give 10 stars for this recipe...Thanks!
