Our clients hosted a traditional Mexican tamale party to celebrate their newly remodeled kitchen.
Tamaladas are traditional day-long events where family and friends gather and make tamales at Christmastime.
From chicken and beef to vegetable, you can fill your tamales with all sorts of tasty flavors and ingredients. To begin, you will need masa (a dough from ground corn), soaked corn husks or fresh banana leaves, favorite fillings, and an assembly line of helping hands to wrap them up. To complete the menu, add guacamole, salsa, rice, and beans, along with warm tortillas and a tamarind margarita. For dessert, pan dulce or flan. Mui bueno.
