Texas Style Food: Handmade Spicy Pork Tamales

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!

Steaming away under cover of a cotton napkin - helps concentrate the heat and steam for a delicious finale!
