You know that Saturday Night Live skit where Rob Schneider keeps saying “making the copies”?
Well, I’ve been making tamales for the past two days & I keep saying “Making tamales” just like him in my head. All. day. long.
BUT – I’m sure when these fabulous things get done steaming, it will all be worth it.
I have made A LOT of Mexican food from scratch over the years, but I have always been intimidated by tamales. Not sure why… but I’ve always heard it was a super long process. I split this up over two days, and it really wasn’t *that* bad. Granted, this is coming from the girl who loves to make enchiladas from scratch – including making the tortillas and sauce. I’m hoping these freeze well so I can make up a huge batch & have them ready to go when we need a quick dinner.
My pretty little tomatillos waiting to be husked:
This green chili made my house smell DIVINE! I think next time I might make a double batch of the sauce to put on top or to smother a burrito.
Making the dough:
Yes, that is an iPad – I’ve gone digital with all of my recipes, menus & shopping lists and I’m in love with technology all over again.
The assembly line:
Steaming yummy goodness.
A perfect meal to end 2011 with!
