  • Summary

    Making tamales can be time consuming, but trust us, it is worth it. If you have someone around, get some help when it comes to filling and folding the packets. It’s nice to share the workload and experience. Make-ahead: Both the batter and the finished tamales can be made ahead of time. Refrigerate, well covered then re-steam or use a microwave to heat before serving. The batter and tamales can also be frozen, just thaw overnight in the refrigerator before re-steaming.

    Ingredients

    • 3 1/2 cups dried masa harina for tamales
    • 2 1/4 cups hot water
    • 10 ounces (1 1/3 cups) pork lard or vegetable shortening, slightly softened
    • 2 teaspoons sea salt
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1 to 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
    • 2 (1-pound) packages banana leaves, defrosted if frozen
    • 4 poblano peppers
    • 4 Anaheim peppers
    • 24 ounces Monterey Jack Cheese, shredded
