These tamales have WAY too much Massa! I haven't had a decent tamale since I moved away from the Mexican Border (Laredo, TX, and Nuevo Laredo, Mexico). Tamales should be small, with a thin layer of Massa and more filling. f you want a "real" tamale that is wonderful, look up Delia's Tamales on the internet. Delia's is located in he Rio Grande Valley of Texas. Now, they have REAL tamales.

I am trying to make these today, getting ready to steam them, however I stood the packets on end for the steaming...my question is if not all of the tamales are eaten, can you store them in the husk,and covered for the next day or should the husk be removed?

Maybe the least authentic recipe I have seen online yet. From the meat to the actual wrapping. They are steamed however that part is right.
