In Mexico, tamales are an end-of-year tradition, especially during Christmas and Posadas. There are all kinds of tamales: savory, sweet, made in molds, with chicken or pork, vegetarian… the options are almost endless!
Many people think that tamales are hard to make but that’s not necessarily true. You do need time and patience, especially when it comes to wrapping them. I suggest you invite your friends and family to assist you with the process, this way you’ll be done in no time.
This time, I decided to make green tamales filled with chicken and a delicious salsa verde. Enjoy them with a delicious lemon or vanilla atole.
