Cooking food from around the world is a great way to introduce other cultures.
The tamale dough is made from Masa flower.
2 lbs Masa
3 tbsp paprika
2 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp cumin
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp broth
2 cups corn oil
Mix together and add water until the dough has the consistency of peanut butter.
They can also be made sweet using spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg, filling with nuts and fruit and adding honey and milk to the dough. We haven't tried sweet tomales yet, but plan to soon.
