How to Make HOT TAMALES FOR A CROWD

Step-by-Step

  1. Put onions, 1/2 cup water, and tomato sauce in a blender-puree. Put all ingredients, except for cornmeal in a roasting pan and mix well by hand.
  2. Roll in a oblong ball, roll in cornmeal, then wrap in papers. ( Wet papers or corn husk so they wont be so stiff.) Put all tamales in a roasting pan; layer in opposite directions.
  3. Put 1 small can tomato paste, 1 ounce chili powder in hot boiling water to dissolve and then pour over hot tamales to completely cover.
  4. Simmer 2 hours with cover on. You might want to place something heavy over tamales to keep them from unfolding.
