I made my first batch of tamales a few years back, and truly gained an appreciation for the time, effort, and heart that goes into making such a dish. Rooted in Mesoamerican culture, tamales are an integral part of Christmas celebrations in Mexico and Latin cultures across the globe. I try to spend a weekend making them each year, but the feat is one that requires time and dedication. If you are short on either, Miguel’s Jr. will be your go-to this season for handmade tamales.
The tamale is comprised of a corn-based masa (dough) which is steamed in a corn husk. Fillings can include everything from meats and cheeses to fruits and vegetables. T
