This was my first time making tamales, so I'm still learning and would change a few things to the recipe. I looked at a lot of different recipes and decided to add onions to the slow cooker and meat. I wish I had read the 'most helpful review' on here first since I would have added the peppers to the slow cooker since you save the juice to add to the masa for flavor. After reading the review, I did add some taco bell taco sauce inside the tamale to try to add flavor, which might have helped a bit, but the masa was a little more bland than I prefer. I also added the traditional pimento olive, which I love. Overall, they're still pretty tasty but I will probably add some enchilada sauce or something to spice it up. I don't like very spicy foods, but I think more ancho chiles or some spicier chiles may also add more flavor. Glad that I made them, thumbs up.
