Tamales: A family recipe passed down from generation to generation

by Yucatan Times

There is not just one traditional Mexican Christmas Dinner but a diversity of dishes depending on the region. But there is one that is King all across Mexico: the almighty Tamale!

Tamales are beautiful cornmeal dumplings with a variety of fillings inside them. Although they are very delicious, they can be quite time-consuming to prepare. Which is why the women only bring out the big guns and prepare them as a special holiday treat.

Preparing tamales is actually a whole thing, with several family members taking part in the process and assisting in their preparation. It really is the perfect holiday food in every sense of the word!

 Red Pork Tamales

Tamales are a popular Mexican snack of meat-filled dough wrapped in corn husks. Its sweet and savory flavor profile makes it wonderfully addictive.

There are a variety of fillings you can use in tamales, and this is among the most popular ones.

Pork shoulder is simmered in a red chile sauce, making it melt-in-your-mouth tender and oh, so delicious.

I’ll be honest – the masa dough takes a while to prepare and cook, but if you enlist the help of a couple of friends, things will be super easy.

Agree with the previous comment, but if we talk about food I like those with chili my grandma always cooks them on holidays
