Your favorite tamale?
So theres chicken, pork, veggie, other. You got your corn husks, banana leaves, aluminum foil even.
Whats your favorite tamale of all time?
I think I'm a sucker for banana leaf tamales with a good bit of sauce. I had a spicy mole poblano tamale with pork in Mexico City that I wish I could recreate.
Regardless, I like a big tamale with lots of sauce and definitely sauce in the masa for flavor and color too.
