I grew up in So. California where Mexican food was very dominant. I noticed that all my friends moms were making *tamales at Christmas time. I could only hope to score one or a dozen! Four years ago I got tired of dreaming about these homemade delectable treats and decided to do something about it. I found a recipe online with detailed instructions and got busy. Its like a 3 day ordeal! Its very labor intensive, but oh so worth it! I have 6 dozen tamales in my freezer for those cold winter nights when all I want to do is bust out a few and pop them in the microwave!
