Christmas Tamales

Yep we do. My wife and I made about 160 Tamales at Christmas time and passed them out to our friends. Itís not inexpensive and a ton of work but itís worth it to see the smiles and hear the comments after they have been enjoyed.

Iím half Mexican and half Swedish and my wife is 100% German (in fact she was born in Germany) and my wife makes as good a Tamale as my 100% Mexican Grandfather, after all he taught her.

Recipe?

Hey,
Any chance of getting your recipe? My friends Granny from San Antonio used to make tamales every Christmas and send them up freezer freight. Unfortunately, she passed away and nobody thought to get the recipe. She probably had it all up in her head anyway. Needless to say, those tamales were like gold, and I only got a few in all those years. That was more than 20 years ago, and I still remember how good they were. Mmmm, tamales.

Thanks, Chuck

Yuck! You should bring those things over to my house so they can be properly disposed of! Funny thing though, my Daughter has been experimenting on us with her cooking. Tonight she made Filet Mignon with blu-cheese something or other. Absolutely wonderful! But, 30 minutes before dinner was ready and we were all getting scared, a friend, brought over a dozen fresh, hot tamales. Guess what I'm having for breakfast..

I love homemade tamales too. My maternal Grandmother would gather her female children and do a weekend of tamale making and female 'catching up', noting recent gossip and family victories / woes. Make over 200 dozen (there were 12 kids in Mom's family). Good times. Mom and her sisters still get together, but it isn't the same.

My wife occasionally makes them, but smaller batches. Cream cheese / jalepeno peppers, finally chopped are a personal favorite.

Found this and it seems to make the spreading much easier

http://www.mex-sales.com/

It won't beat grandma, but it does not take 90 years of practice either.

They have a you-tube link where she she spreads an entire 5# bag of MaSeca in less than 8 minutes

Me amigo, rolando taught me to use a plastic bondo spreader which is almost as good and locally available.

For the guys in georgia, try here

http://mifiesta.com/kms00110.html

That said, plese do post your recipes for the meat and the masa, I tend to over spice my masa andjit ends up tasting horrible.

Luckily I grow Chili pequines and trade part of my crop for my buddies tamales. (Pure fire with no flavor unlike habineros or jalepenos)

Oh yea, got a recipe for chili gravy? The Girlfriend loves it, but I have never made it.

For any of you in Illinois.

Out in the middle of nowhere.

At the intersection of 17 and 29 in Sparland, Illinois there is a BBQ in an old converted gas station. It's run by "Pushcart Willie" who used to sell tamales in Peoria.

They make them from scratch, and they are superb.

It's worth the trip there if you're in the area for lunch. I make it a point when I'm over that way.
