Made Tamales Tonight

Stixgirl74 Oct 7, 2010 09:44 PM

Damn! I really thought I had it down.
I decided to make chicken tamales. They came out too dry.
It said to steam for 2 hours. Cook for less than given time...
I need to make them smaller, add enough broth and more chili filling.
Any Suggestions?

    Where I live tamales are as common as burgers. Here's a link to an article about Memphis, TN tamales in today's paper.


    There's a "tamale trail" site that's really interesting also. Click on the tamale recipe and how to link on left. Let me know if you want some great tamales. I will overnight you a few dozen.
