A Gift of Tamales

Tamales, well made ones, would be my Death Row food. The spiced meat complimented by the mild outer masa covering can't be beat. I was lucky enough to receive these from one of Mrs. Phos's friends. As far as I am concerned, this is what the South West is all about, if the Southwest had a taste, this would be it...

I don't like spicy food.

Problem with tamales is I can eat about 2 dozen and not feel that full.

They sure are good though. I like mine for breakfast with fried eggs and ranchero sauce on top.

no wonder you love those tamales with their not too subtle erotic contours. Maybe it's just pervy me. Carry on.

Death Row food? Are you planning something we need to be worried about, or just speaking hypothetically?

Yum!! I LOVE Tamales.. and yes they are a South West treat but here in South Florida we have them as well...my Mother In Law is Cuban and she makes a marvelous Tamale...

pk:We'll they're pret near good as sex...

/t.: Too slow on the mouse button!

sj: Every culture seems to have something similar, but it is hard to beat the real thing. Beware supermarket tamales or tamales in a can, they tend to be pretty horrid.

keshi: Curry: not just for breakfast anymore!!

SL: here may be some openings on our HOA board here shortly...

leelee: Lots of tasty Caribbean food. Lots of big flavors. Oddly enough my first tamale was in Panama, it was pretty nasty. Fortunately I decided to give them another chance and have never looked back.

I really need to travel.......don't think I've even ever SEEN one of those before - what IS that outer cover? Looks like flax or something?

Phos,

What are the exact "good" and "proper" parts of a tamale?

What kind of outter coat is that?

How do you spice the meat?

Is there cheese in those?

Are they fried, baked?

I have never had a Tamale that I enjoyed so I know I must be getting some kind of bastardized hybrid american crap of a tamale. Teach me the way of the Tamale please.
