Make Your Own Tamales

Known for their rich filling of meats, cheeses, veggies and chiles, tamales have long-since been a staple in Spanish and Mexican culinary culture. Don’t let their long history intimidate you, though–these healthy tamale recipes require patience and time but are well-worth the effort in the kitchen. 

First up are our Chipotle Pork Tamales with Cilantro-Lime Crema. These authentic pork tamales are bursting with flavor and serve as a wonderful gift for loved ones. For gift giving, assemble and steam tamales. Cool and freeze, wrapped in husks, in an airtight container, and attach a note about reheating.
