This was my first attempt at tamales, and I think it was very successful. I doubled the recipe and I think I had 36 small tamales. Next time I would triple it because I kept worrying about running out. I added two medium potatoes to the mix because my family does, and I would definitely add them next time. I was sort of bummed to waste all that pork broth, next time I would probably just use it in place of the beef broth. I added a tomato to the boiled chiles, and pan fried three of the chiles with probably 4 chiles japones. Next time I would probably add more tomato to my mix just because I thought the tamales needed a brighter flavor. Definitely steam the tamales in an upright position with the open side up. Mine were small and took about 1 hr 20 mins. I topped the tamales with some sour cream I mixed with some chile sauce, and some homemade red salsa and those fresh flavors brought the tamales to life. DELICIOUS!
