Beef Tamales
I ADD MERKEN MAPUCHE SPICE. I found the Chilean spice about 2 years ago. It has a slightly smokey chile flavor (similar to ancho chiles). But I added about 3 tbsp to the original recipe and it really adds a wonderful flavor to the meat. I have an Asian bamboo steamer basket set that I stack on to of a large soup pot with a steamer grill at the bottom resting on a standard coffee mug. I am then able to fill the pot with water all of the way up to the top of the mug, then I begin layering the tamales, first on the steamer grill, then in the next three bamboo steamer baskets I have. It allows me to steam an entire batch at once. These are really tasty, can't wait to make them again. P.S. I get the Merken spice online. I can put it on just about everything.

Something about the grill's heat brings out the best flavor in the simplest chicken recipe.
