I adore tamales but not all the work it takes to make them.

I just recently learned how to make tamales which I have loved all my life. I make mine over a 2 day period. I cook my meat & make my sauce the first day & put the tamales all together & steam them the second day. We like the pork ones because that's what we grew up with. Your recipe looks interesting with the tomatillo sauce.

Interesting using the broth and oil instead of lard. That might make a good potluck dish for the hubby's work.

Daughter in law is Hispanic heritage and both she and the son are Vegan. I keep saying that I'm going to learn how to make tamales but I want to start with a Crisco base and vegan fillings I think... since the Hubby is keto and I'm low carb, I'm concerned that the test batches will go largely uneaten. But I guess really, it's not that much in terms of masa.

Hubby and I have been stopping by a local restaurant Sunday mornings before bowling. They make a dulce tamale with raisins that has the loveliest texture and I know what I'm trying for, lol, I also know the soggy stuff I've ended up with years ago. As Martha Stewart would say, a good tamale is a good thing

I use a masa spreader like this one. It's a great invention & so much easier than trying to spread it on the corn shucks with the back of a spoon.

Too much work for me. Don't even know if I could find all the ingredients.

I like the canned ones. We eat them maybe twice a year.

Jingle, before I moved to So.Cal. I only ate the canned tamales. Thought there were good until I had them for real. I went up to WA and found a can of the ones we used to eat and thought they were still good but cannot compete with the fresh ones.

I have always wanted to learn to make them but since my daughter & I are the only one in the family that like to eat them we believe it is best just go buy them. We have a place about 4 miles from the house that makes and sells the best tamales.
