Get the family gathered around and make you an "assembly line" and get to work! You won't regret the outcome!
This recipe makes about 6 dozen tamales.
This will actually look like 3 instructables, but they all add up to one great TAMALE! So let's get cooking!
STEP 1 will be making the meat - this is made ahead of time, and I like to put it in the slow cooker to cook overnight. This way the meat is tender and shreds apart easily.
STEP 2 will be making the masa (that dough like surrounding for the meat).
STEP 3 will be assembling the tamales - the part of tamale making where it helps to have lots of helpers to roll them up
STEP 4 will be cooking the tamales, and or course enjoying your reward!
