is not hard, as much as it takes most of the day. It is something to do in stages, cooking the different meat at night, and then filling the husks in the morning after making the masa filled with broth from the meat, and a homemade salsa in the masa, as well, and then after all 100 are rolled, steaming them for about 4 hours in a large pot. If anyone wants more directions, I will be happy to share. Mine have several different meats, goat cheese, salsa, sometimes potatoes as well…delicious! 7 months ago

I still have not mastered it after 4 or so tries with different methods. I need to make them with lard to get the perfect texture! 15 months ago
I had my first Tamale at a friend’s birthday party when I was 15. Ever since, I order one every time I see one on the menu at any Mexican Restaurant. Nothing is better than a home-made tamale! I would love to learn how to make them but I heard it is really hard! 19 months ago
How I did it: I went to Google and found the "world's greatest" tamale recipe. I use that recipe (I'm sure there are many others). Every Cinco de Mayo I mix up the meat filling and masa and have each student make their own tamale. We steam them during class and they are ready to eat at the end of the class hour.
