Guatemalen Tamales - the tale of a Sunday well spent. #recipe

Authentic Guatemalan Tamales

Not just for Christmas (though that usually is the tradition) you can usually find Guatemalan style tamales on the weekends in Guatemala and in US cities with a large Guatemalan population.  They freeze well, and can be re-heated in a pot of boiling water several months later, trust me, I know.  Our annual trip to Guatemala, we usually get 200 of these for family gatherings. Cost in the US, $2.50, in Guatemala much less!

Receta Tamales Guatemaltecos.  I remember the first time I tried making these by myself. I made the Mexican tamales which they don't cook the masa.  They were not good not because they were the Mexican ones but because I am American/Italian.  Then me and my husband made these together and till this day everybody says they are the best tamales they ever ate.  It's a lot of WORK.
