Tamales are a traditional Latin American dish that goes back to the Mayans. There are over 5,000 variations in Mexico alone. But they’re also found in countries such as Panama, Costa Rica, Honduras, and Argentina, among other countries, each with their own variations.
Tamales are little packets of goodness that are usually wrapped with corn husks or banana leaves. Inside the packet they put corn dough called “masa” which surrounds the main filling that can be almost anything: beef, chicken, pork, fish, vegetables, fruit, cheese, and whatever you can think of. They can be a complete meal by themselves and are also very portable. You can eat them with your hands while walking if you’re in a hurry, which is why it’s a popular street food.
Preparing tamales is very fun. They’re a perfect dish to cook for the whole family or when having friends over. They’re also great little gifts for when visiting a friend. Everyone will surely love them and so will you! So go ahead and explore the amazing world of tamales and discover the deliciousness hidden within these wonderful packets.
