I'll have to get my mother-in-law to give me her recipe. I know she uses pork but for the meat, she also uses potatoes, green olives, lots of chilies, tomatoes and onions for the filling. Her tamales are about 2~2 1/2 inches wide by 6 inches long. They are not the little round ones you pick up at a tex-mex restraunt. By the time you have finished a half dozen of these, you will have smoke comming out your ears and a smile on your face. Damn good !! I'll get the recipe.
