I love tamales. I hate paying $2 each for them though. We were invited to a family tamale making day by my friend Steven. I watched and helped with the masa application on the corn husks. It was fun and I just knew I would end up doing it myself. And I did. It is amazing what a Boston butt pork roast can become. Homemade sauce, made from spicy smoked Ancho chiles. The photo above was my final product: 5 dozen spicy pork tamales. They are delicious. It is easier than you might think!
Ready to steam!
