Real Homemade Tamales

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
I am from New Mexico and this is almost what me and my family have done for years. The only changes I would make is: The chile should taste good enough to eat on its own. When you make chile, I would add garlic and salt to taste. I also let the meat and chile marinate for at least 2 days. Also you should put the meat in crock-pot with water filled all the way to the top and cook until the meat falls apart, at least 6-8 hours depending on the size. Save the juice that is from the crock-pot to use to make the dough. You may also need more broth so you can make the dough to a really think pudding, or really creamy peanut butter. It needs to spread really nice. To cook, I would just lay the tamales on top of each other on top of in inverted aluminum pan with a few holes poked in it on and then place a glass plate on top of that and add water up to the plate, then start stacking the tamales. Good luck and happy cooking!!!!!

Libby's® Famous Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
My mom has made this pie since I was little and now I make it for my family. The only thing we changed is the cooking time, I like a firmer pie, so I bake it 40 extra minutes. Yum! Oh and I freeze these all the time, but we really don't like crusts all that much, so we don't care if the crust separate, we don't really care how it looks, it still tastes just a wonderful and when it is first bakes, just without the crust.

Fideo (Mexican Spaghetti)

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
My mom made this when we were growing up. I make them now. This is the what we call the "poor week" meal, but it is so good, sometimes I just crave it. I usually don't put meat, thus the "poor week" meal. I use fido pasta or just regular elbow macaroni and I use tomato sauce only. More tomato less water. I also add Velveta or American cheese to the pot so it melts together. I don't add chile powder or cumin, but I put garlic powder. This is a good side with pan fried potatoes or spam. Yum, with tortillas.
