This was amazing! I will never make another tamale again. I followed the recipe exactly and would not change a thing! THANK YOU - this will be a staple at my house forever.
Excellent! The tamale dough is the best I have made and tasted!!! I didn't have tomatillos so used firm tomatoes. There is nothing that I could add or change to this recipe to make it any better!! I will use this dough in my corn husk tamale recipe! Thanks for posting!
I must admit, I was looking for a way to use up some masa harina, rice, beans and cooked chicken, so I followed the dough recipe exactly, but I made up my own filling using the rice, beans and cooked chicken as well as some onions, a can of tomatoes, chipotle chiles in adobo, cilantro, chili powder, cumin, etc. which I simmered for 10 minutes before assembling and baking just as directed in the recipe. It is a perfect vehicle for leftovers. The tamale dough is fantastic! I will try this again when I have more time to use the filling ingredients as posted. Thanks for a great recipe that I will use again!
