I’m up to my elbows in masa, tamale husks, chiles and empanadas. Today I host my very first tamalada in my home! I am pretty stoked, this is major! My mom has always been in charge of our tamaladas and she is, always will be the expert on tamales.
Her masa is spot on fluffy, her filling perfectly seasoned and even her tamale pot seems to hum a jolly tune while steaming away on her stove top.
I’ve got mighty big shoes to fill and with a house full of family coming over I decided to make a HUGE pot of Abuelita chocolate and peppermint marshmallows to keep the kiddos happy.
I’m also whipping up two new empanadas that I will send home with guests and will be treating my guests with a new tamale for dinner. Don’t worry I will be sharing all these new recipes with you over the next few days. But today a sweet giveaway from Abuelita! Enjoy!
