Steps:

  • Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Add beef, green chiles, hot sauce, salt, 3 cloves garlic, onion, black pepper, and cayenne pepper. Cook and stir until beef is thoroughly browned, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain and reserve the drippings.
  • Combine reserved drippings, masa, lard, and baking powder in a large bowl. Mix well. Add up to 1 cup water, 1 teaspoon at a time, until mixture is as thick as biscuit dough. Divide into 50 equal balls. Place dough balls between 2 cutting boards each lined with a sheet of waxed paper; flatten into circles.
  • Place each dough circle into a corn husk. Spoon about 3 tablespoons beef mixture in a line across the middle of each husk. Top with a small amount of cheese. Fold opposing sides of the tortilla to overlap the filling. Roll the husk around the tamale and fold in one end.
  • Combine the remaining 1 clove garlic, 1 cup water, and chili powder in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring chili sauce to a boil. Remove from heat.
  • Stand a batch of the tamales, folded ends-down, in a steamer basket on top of a double boiler over simmering water. Bring water to a boil; cover and steam for 20 minutes. Remove tamales from heat; remove husks and top tamales with the chili sauce. Repeat with remaining tamales.

Steps:

  • Make the filling: Put the pork in a deep saucepan and cover with cold water (about 6 cups). Add 2 teaspoons salt, the onion, thyme, oregano, bay leaves and peppercorns; cover and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to maintain a gentle simmer and cook until the pork is tender, 1 hour, 30 minutes to 2 hours. Transfer the pork to a plate and shred. Strain and reserve the cooking liquid; keep warm.
  • Meanwhile, soak the corn husks in a bowl of hot water, using a plate to keep them submerged, until pliable, 1 hour.
  • Combine the pork, cumin, 1/3 cup chili powder, the garlic, flour, sugar, vegetable oil and 1 cup of the reserved cooking liquid in a large skillet. Bring to a simmer over medium heat; cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid is absorbed, about 25 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, make the dough: Mix the masa harina, lard, 2 teaspoons salt, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon chili powder and 2 2/3 cups of the reserved cooking liquid in a bowl until combined.
  • Drain the husks and pat dry. Starting 1/2 inch from the wide end, spread about 3 tablespoons of the dough down a husk, leaving a 1-inch border on the sides. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the pork filling down the center of the dough, then fold in the sides of the husk, wrapping the dough around the filling. Fold up the narrow end of the husk. Repeat with the remaining husks, dough and filling.
  • Set a steamer basket in a large pot filled with 1 to 2 inches of water. Arrange the tamales standing up in the steamer, folded-side down. Bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat, cover and steam until the dough is firm, 45 to 50 minutes. Remove from the steamer and let cool slightly before unwrapping.

2 1/2 pounds boneless pork shoulder, cut into 3-inch pieces
Kosher salt
1 onion, quartered
4 sprigs fresh thyme or 2 teaspoons dried thyme
2 teaspoons dried oregano (preferably Mexican)
2 bay leaves
12 black peppercorns
24 dried corn husks
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/3 cup plus 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 clove garlic, minced
2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons sugar
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
4 cups masa harina (instant corn flour)
1 1/3 cups lard

Steps:

  • You have to beat the lard, (I use a machine), beat it until it gets soft, and fluffy.
  • Add the flour, and keep beating it.
  • Into a blender put the jalapenos, onion, tomatoes, salt, and the peregil. Add some water, you are making a salsa.
  • In another pot, put some water and the chicken, and boil them.
  • Take a big spoon of the mixture of the lard and spread it on the corn leaves, add a spoon of salsa, and a piece of chicken in it. Wrap the husk so the flour mixture seals around the meat and salsa
  • Keep doing this until the mixture is gone
  • Steam them in an oversized pot.
  • In mexico we use special pots, you can use any but be sure to cook them in the vapor.
  • Let it cook, you'll know when its ready when you touch the tamale and its not fluffy any more, it gets solid.
  • When you eat it put the leaf into the trash can, you won't eat the leaf, in mexico people add some cream over it and thats good.

1 kg lard
1 kg cornflour (white corn Mexican)
4 chicken breasts
5 jalapenos
1/2 onion
8 small green tomatoes or 3 red tomatoes
20 corn husks, dry (if you cant find any dry youll have to get them in the market with the corn and let them dry)
25 g chopped parsley

  • Make the masa dough: In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the lard and 2 tablespoons of broth until fluffy, about 3-5 minutes. Combine the masa flour, baking powder, salt, and cumin in a separate bowl; stir into the lard mixture and beat well with an electric mixer.
  • Add the broth, little by little to form a very soft dough. Beat on high speed for several minutes. The dough should spread like creamy peanut butter and be slightly sticky.* Cover the mixing bowl with a damp paper towel, to keep the dough from drying out.

  • 1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream lard and butter together until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. (Alternatively, use a hand mixer or whisk.) 2. In a separate bowl, mix masa harina, baking powder, and kosher salt together until well combined. Add dry ingredients to the whipped lard and mix until a shaggy dough forms. 3. Add broth one cup at a time, mixing after every addition, until a light, spongy dough forms. (You may not need to use all of the broth.) Test the masa by pressing a little into the palm of your hand. If it holds its shape and doesn’t crack, and is able to be easily removed from your palm without sticking, the dough is ready. If not, add more liquid and continue to mix.
  • 1. In a large bowl or stockpot, soak corn husks in warm water and cover. (If the corn husks rise to the surface, cover with a clean plate or other weight.) Soak until softened, about 30 minutes and up to overnight, then drain and pat dry with a clean kitchen towel. 2. Line a large strainer or steamer basket with corn husks (this is a good use for any extra-large or extra-small husks) and place a ball of foil in the center. Place tamales against the ball, open side up, leaning them against each other. 3. Set a softened corn husk on a flat surface smooth side up, with the wide end facing you and the tapered end pointing away from you. Starting from the wide end of the husk, spread 2 tablespoons masa with your fingers or an offset spatula from edge to edge and about ⅔ of the way up the husk. You should have a rectangle about a ¼ inch thick. Repeat with remaining husks. 4. Add 2 tablespoons of chilled filling to the center of the masa-covered husk. Fold one side of the husk over the fillin
