I made the recipe yesterday. I did tinker a bit,I used a standard 14.5 oz can of beef broth in the Masa and used Maseca ( instant corn flour). I tested it on my wife's caregiver this morning. Patricia is a Hispanic woman from Oxaca, Mexico. Married with four children and a growing adult husband. I gave her a tamal and after one taste, she ate it all. Her comments; Great flavor, could be a bit hotter. Also, a hint on rolling. Soak the husks over night. Trim the overlong tails just a bit. Use the smooth side to spread the masa. Lay flat,spread masa. fold the left side over, fold the tail up toward the center and fold the right side over. No need to tie.
