I love Tamales. I wish I could find a 5 gallon bucket of vendor tamales.
Maybe then my craving would be satisfied!

Last time I had them were at a friends wedding. They were Mexican and the mothers and grandmothers all lined up and assembled and steamed all day it seamed.
I took home quite a few as well. They don't mess around. They make enough for an army. The masa was flavored as well and they had chicken, pork, beef and shrimp.
They also made an assortment of salsa's. Hot and cold. Whoa that was good.
They heated up well to.

Not hard to make, just time consuming. The last time we made them, we got three meals out of them, as they freeze well.

I know you don't like Mexican food Addie so you can cut them up and pulverize them to a powder in a blender or food processor. It makes an excellent tasty thickener to be used in soups or stews of your choice. I think it would be especially good added to your corn chowder that I know you like.

Thanks KL. I will give that as a solution. Two cans of cream style corn is going on my list for shopping. The corn chowder from my lunch delivery has to be my favorite. So thick and tasty. I make it with evaporated milk. It is creamy but not thick. Thank you for your suggestion will solve that problem. THANKS A BUNCH. When I get back from physical therapy today, I will be doing just that. What makes that suggestion so great, these are corn ones and will fit perfect for the chowder. My ultimate favorite soup.

Glad the idea was helpful Addie. I also love to make corn chowder when fresh corn comes into season, and I often use Masa to thicken it. Floating green onion slices and crisp bacon pieces on top makes it extra special knowing everything is better with bacon.

Waiting for fresh corn has been noted.
