Hi all, I finally made a batch of tamales. Here's how it turned out (pretty good, I thought)...
Up close shot.
Evidence that I actually helped make it. :)
Here is a pic of the head chef. He rated the tamales a 5 on a scale of 1 to 10. 10 being how his Mom makes them. I was very happy with how they turned out, as I've only had them at a rest. and those weren't good. I actually liked these tamales they weren't dry and hard like the first time I ate a tamale.
I had a blast and would love to make tamales again. Though not by myself, man, it's a lot of work!
