How to Make Tamales: Tamalada Video

tamale masa dough in KitchenAid 2

I hosted a tamalada (tamal-making party) a couple of weeks ago and I have so many photos and a complete blog post that I plan to share in a few days, but in the meantime I wanted to share this video. I had a houseful of beautiful women and amazing food.

We drank champurrado and mimosas, nibbled on chorizo meatballs with pineapple salsa, chocolate truffles, coconut cream fried pies, and a jalapeño bacon cheese ball. Then we filled, wrapped, and steamed tamales with a variety of fillings such as chorizo and red chile and pork just to name a few.

Please sit back and enjoy watching this video of the tamalada I hosted.

Thank you to all of the lovely ladies who came over and spent some time with me in my home. I look forward to making this an annual tradition with all of you.

  11. Would like more recipes. My mother passed in May she always cooked traditional mexican food handed down from my Nanas. Unfortunately I did not get a lot of recipes from her. I would like to know more about cooking the meat for the tamales. I want to carry on the tradition of the tamale parties and cooking. the traditional Sonoran Mexican food i used to enjoy growing up.
