Tamale Guide


Tamales are one of the original comfort foods—warm corn masa, a filling of seasoned meat and sauce, all tucked inside steamed, pliable corn husks. Tamales are as much a part of Texas holidays as family and football. Gather all your tamale supplies from essential ingredients to the Cocinaware tamale steamer.
