I didn’t think I’d be able to make tamales – but this tamale recipe proved me wrong! Mexican food is so delicious, and gives us plenty of options to make healthy meals without breaking the bank.
This is an abbreviated variation of the tamale recipe
from the phenomenal Mexican chef (and Top Chef Master), Rick Bayless, so if you are new to tamales or need some clarification, please go check out the full description and details on his website. I am such a huge fan of his, and rely on his recipes when I need a really down and dirty Mexican dish. He really delivers!!
I abbreviated it, well, mainly because I use this website all the time to make these dishes. Once you make this recipe once, it is very nice to have a simple bullet list of the ingredients and steps, so here it is! I also list the healthier ingredients that we use in our kitchen.
