I am venezuelan and the recipe looks really good and actually, very similar to my family's old recipe, but the hallacas are never wrapped in corn husks (those are used for tamales) they are wrapped in plantain leaves (they can be found in spanish stores, already clean, cut and frozen) believe it or not, this little detail will change the flavor completely...

I am from Venezuela and I am now in US I made this recipe for Christmas and the hallacas were awesome, very good flavor, and the best thing is that you can find all the ingredients in US
