  1. OMG….this was just what I needed…..I have bring craving the taste of tamales for a few weeks now and this just hit the spot perfectly. I did everything per the recipe except I used a different brand of ‘corn’ flavoring. I served it topped with a pinch of diced avocado, sour cream, and green onions. The flavors were just awesome. Thank you so very much for the recipe!
