The Back Story

The exact origin of tamales is unknown; however legend says the Aztecs ate them long before the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors. In Mexico, Central America, and the American Southwest, tamales are traditionally prepared with friends and family on Christmas Eve and then served warm on Christmas Day to callers who drop by. Wrapped in corn husks or banana leaves, and filled with anything from pork to pineapple and raisins, the recipes for these deliciously steamy corn dumplings are handed down from generation to generation.
