"What I like about this recipe is the heavy, pancake-like batter. As soon as it hits the skillet, it puffs and seals quickly so the cheese doesn't ooze all over." – DIZ♥
"This turned out great. I used THINLY flank steak from a carniceria. Don't forget the lightly grilled green onions." – Marty
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.
