How to Make Spinach, cheese & roasted pepper tamales

Step-by-Step

  1. Place corn husks in hot water and let stand for 15 minutes to soften; remove and blot off excess water
  2. Stir together masa, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Add spread and mix again. Using an electric mixer beat in enough stock/broth to form a soft dough. Stir in remaining ingredients
  3. Place equal amounts of mixture on center of each corn husk. Fold in the sides, then the bottom. Place in a steamer basket folded sides down. Cover and cook over medium-low heat 45 minutes to an hour. Best if served immediately with desired toppings
