Easy Hot Tamales

Debbie wright Recipe

By Debbie wright debbie110772

I got this recipe from a co-worker and played around with it. I hate Tamales that dont have enough meat. These babies are meaty and full of flavor.Plus they are super easy!! They are the best left over and they freeze beautifully!! It sounds like alot of ingredients but its really easy.
