Default Hot Tamale.........Pron

Made a little over 100 of these little wrapped goodies. I made the traditional red and green chile. About 30 of them went to neighbors and a few have been consumed over the last two days. Most of the green went into the deep freeze for later on. Gotta love em.

Custom Masa spoon, one hammer, pound the carp outta the spoon to make it flat. One heaping spoon is the right amout for one tamale.

Masa, peanut butter consistency. That bowl has a lot of history. It's the one my grandparents used for many years. Back when they made em, that whole vessel was full to the top with masa. Easily 25-30 lbs of masa.

Red Chile filling.

Tamalera Pot.

Assembly line.

Red....cooling down.

Green.....cooling down.

Green for dinner.

More green for breakfast!
