This is a great jumping-off point for beginners! Tamales are a tradition around here, but growing up in Florida, I didn't have much experience with them. I did take a few shortcuts- I bought a rotisserie chicken from the store and shredded about 2/3 of it, then I added the onion and a few cloves of garlic in with the peppers as they simmered (also, be sure to cover the pot when they simmer or you won't have enough sauce!) and they turned out wonderful! My native New Mexican husband wolfed down four of them almost immediately! If anybody has trouble finding real New Mexican chile, let me know and I'll be happy to send you some!
