      These savory and slightly sweet tamales were great. I subbed ground turkey for the beef and currants for the raisins with excellent results. I soaked the corn husks in warm water first, as other recipes recommended. Also, decided to serve with avocado salsa. Does anyone have other suggestions for condiments? Terrific recipe.
