Same here. But I think I liked them just as much as he did, I also really liked making them. I'll probably do some more research and order a steamer tomorrow. I'm glad you've started this thread tg, it has been helpful to me as well!

I know that many on here are going to say, "You don't need that" but, I'm thinking of getting the masa spreader too. I could not for the life of me, get the masa to spread well with my small spreader. I had to end up using my hands and I felt that it had too much masa on them. I like more meat than masa. DH liked them the way they were, but, I think if I thinned it just a little so there was more room for meat, he would like them better.

Here's a site for you to check out TXgirl. http://www1.shopping.com/xGS-tamale_...4~r-1~CLT-INTR By the way, what I learned from my grandma and mom is to use an ordinary 4 to 6 quart pot with lid, lay about 10 to 12 corn husks at the base to avoid tamales from sticking, add your tamales and water, cover and cook for an hour or until done. It's that simple.

Please let me know how that masa spreader works out for you! If you're really happy with it, I may invest in one too. Like you, I just used my hands but I think my masa was thicker in consistency than yours so I was able to press it really thin and stuff it with a lot of meat. I was surprized on the recipes, they said 1/2 cup masa and only 1 Tablespoon of filling! I just made it the way I thought we'd like it.

Hey tg-
Just wondering if you've gotten your steamer yet, and if so, what do you think of it? I haven't gotten around to ordering one yet, my mom's been out visiting for the past week.

No, I haven't. I have a $25 gift card to Sears,but you can't use it online and it's 40 miles to the nearest one. I'm on vacation, first time in 4 years, so, I may go look this week.

We have a Sears in town, I can go take a look if you want. odds are they'll have the same stuff, then you won't have to drive all that way.

You don't need to go to all that trouble!! If your in town, you can look, but, don't make an extra trip just for that. Thank you for asking!!
