Whenever we have a get together I am asked to bring tamale balls. Here in New Orleans hot tamales are a delicacy. Tamale balls are very spicy and very delicious cousin to the hot tamale. They are a great appetizer but you can also put a few on a roll and sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese and you have a very spicy sandwich.
What a great appetizer! Imagine all the yummy deliciousness of a tamale in a bite-size package. These do have a bit of a kick, so adjust the heat to your liking.

This sounds good. My husband loves spicy foods so I will have to try this. I like the idea of making it into a sandwich......"Cajun meatball sandwich" on a crusty sub-roll! ;)
