I love to explore different cultures and this week I sampled a tamale from a Guatemalan cook. My family uses corn husks as a wrapper and a masa made through nixtamalization (soaked corn in a alkaline solution = hominy). I believe this tamale was also made with the same type of masa but the filling was a bit different as it had bell pepper, pork meat, and seeds. This tamale was very, very yummy and large enough to share with my willing husband! Go forth and explore!
