great recipe! as first-time tamale-makers, we were a little afraid, but they turned out great! a few notes:
-we used the premade trader joe's carnitas ($3.99 for 12oz) and had MORE than enough meat. i can't imagine if we'd had the entire 1 1/4 lbs!
-even after soaking the corn husks for an hour, we still had problems getting them to stay folded - toothpicks worked great to keep them shut during the steaming.
-the california chile was really mild - we think we'll try a spicier type next time.
all in all, great recipe!
