Most difficult meal on this planet?!?!? I say, “Ha!” With a good recipe and simple instructions, I made these Monterrey Jack & Green Chile Tamales. I did learn that these are traditionally made during the holiday season and given to friends and family as gifts. Matt’s close pal, Ben, was invited to dinner and shared his memories of wrapping over 800 tamales to hand out to cousins, uncles, brothers, sisters and anyone who walked through their door really. He asked me to wrap some as a birthday gift to him because he liked them so much. I’d say I accomplished my mission and am glad to have checked it off my list. Next…Baked Alaska anyone?? Jk.
As for me.. I love tamales. Good tamales are hard to find. Most places you go to it is very obvious that they were made, frozen and reheated. No bueno…
As a working gal I knew there was no way I was going to be able to do this in one night. So the I made the meat the night before and assembled the next.
I truly was not expecting them to turn out well. But.. They were pretty good. Even the husband mentioned that the masa was perfect. (Yay me!)
If you’ve never made tamales before follow this link for the step by step instructions for making tamales. She makes it look easy..
