Easy Homemade Tamale Recipe

Here is a simple recipe for pork tamales. You can substitute the fresh masa with Maseca. If you don’t like pork you can use any savory meat filling you like. Feel free to adjust seasoning, filling or masa. I encourage you to make the recipe your own and share with family and friends.

5lb pork shoulder roast
2 bay leaves
2 tsp salt
1 chicken bullion (optional)
1/2 tsp pepper
2 garlic cloves minced
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 lb bag of corn husk
**Be sure to soak husks in hot water for at least 2 hours
or until soft and pliable

MASA- 5 lbs bag fresh white masa
2 cups of melted pork lard
1 cup of drippings from pork or water
salt to taste

(Use any combo of dried chiles you like. Here’s what I used.)
2 cascabel chiles
4 ancho chiles
2 pasilla chiles
1 small onion
3 cloves of garlic
salt to taste
