Yesterday we all got together to make tamales for Christmas. Actually the work started before that - Tito cooked and shredded the pork
and went to the Mexican market and bought the massa. We have never made our own massa - it is easier to buy it premixed.

The corn husks soaking in hot water, the pork with the chilies and onions added

The process, the massa spread on a corn husk, the filling added, wrapped in the husk and tied
The assembly line
Kaiden helping by playing
A pot of the tamales steaming
The reward!
We all ate, the kids took some home and the rest went into the freezer for Christmas.

My Pop loves tamales. Hard to get them here in the deep south!
