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.

How to Make Easy Hot Tamales

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix all of the meat ingredients in a large mixing bowl.Set to the side.
  2. In a shallow pan mix the cormeal mixture and get a a steam pot ready. I crumble up foil in the bottom of a large pot.
  3. I take a large rounded tablespoon of the meat mixture and drop it in the dry cornmeal mixture. Roll lightly in mix shapping to make rolls about 3-4 inches long. Place tamale on a wrapper(coffee filter). Wrap and fold in the ends. Stack in a pot to steam.Should make 4-5 dozen.
  4. Pour steam mixture over tamales and add enough water to almost cover tamales. Bring to boil and and reduce to medium heat and cover. Steam for approx 1 hour and 15 min. Allow the temales to cool before serving.
