"The perfect choice for a New Year's Eve dinner. This was fabulous." – Janice
"I [made these] for our New Year's Eve celebration. It's really the sauce that brings these meatballs to life—creamy with a pronounced fresh dill flavor." – naples34102
"Delicious! I had hoped for some extra to freeze, but after everyone got seconds there was none." – patwilliams
Recipe of the Day
These are just like the tamales my Abuelita used to make for special occasions. This recipe makes a lot, but if you're going to go to all the trouble of making tamales from scratch, you might as well have a party! You will need butchers' twine and a large pot with a steamer basket to make these. May be frozen up to 6 months in heavy-duty resealable plastic bags. To reheat, thaw in refrigerator and then steam or microwave until heated through.
