I just want to say thanks for taking the time to post this, because I really REALLY liked these! I've only had tamales once before (restaurant), and I wondered why I'd waited so long! So, I made a small batch at home with this recipe, but I have to admit- I modified it a bit! Like many, I'm sure! I added 1 T cumin to the batter, and I shredded the meat from some bbq spare ribs that were tender, juicy and lots of spices and flavor. I used that for the filling, and they turned out pretty well for my first time. I think what I've learned is that the maza has to be sloppy wet when you put it into the husks-- I didn't get the batter that wet, and I should have. Next time... and next time I'll experiment with some other fillings. I'd love to hear if anyone else has stuffed these with fillings that wowed their family and friends... I'd love to share the recipe with you, and I'll post it on my blog.
