I've been making tamales.

Specifically chocolate tamales with dried cherries. No filling, it's all just mixed in with the masa.
A lot of people are more than a little skeptical, but they all like them.

Tonight I'm trying for two batches, one cinnamon sugar and another one, more traditional, crushed pineapple and raisins.

Anyone else like making tamales?
Any suggestions?

Sounds more like crepes than tamales.

Bon appétit Seadog

I haven't made them, but there's a little Mexican market we go to for their awesome tamales and they also have the sweet pineapple ones. They are awesome.
I didn't think I liked tamales until I discovered this place.

I made the pineapple raisin ones last night and had one with my coffee this morning. Good stuff.

The only problem I have is the consistency of the masa. I don't have an electric mixer so I can't get quite enough air in there (a tablespoon does not float on water).
Still, they taste pretty great.

Savory is next, my wife says she'll make a filling with zuchini and roasted corn. Smile
