Tamale is Another Day

January 24, 2017

Tamales are not easy or fast when they are made “from scratch.” Seriously, are you really going to eat a frozen tamale? Aw heck NAW! These are no pork, mostly vegetarian, some have chicken in them, tamales. All sauces are house made, the chicken was left over from dinner the night before- and it had a lovely happy chicken life they tell me.  Friends, I am open to all foods- except beef and lamb and goat and usually pigs. Sigh. It’s complicated. Tamales are complicated and take several steps. But they are worth it.

    YUM! I love tamales, but sadly all this northern midwestern girl has ever had are canned and frozen. You know I may never leave, right? Seriously!
