Here is a simple recipe for pork tamales. You can substitute the fresh masa with Maseca. If you don’t like pork you can use any savory meat filling you like. Feel free to adjust seasoning, filling or masa. I encourage you to make the recipe your own and share with family and friends.

or until soft and pliable

MASA- 5 lbs bag fresh white masa
