To say that tamales are a “favorite” of mine is sort of putting it mildly. That said, I have yet to try a tamal that rivals my Grandma Salazar’s. And right now I am jubilant because my mom, my sister Megan, my daughter Sofia and I made over six dozen tamales today.
To read all about Grandma and her famous tamales, check out my dear friend Nicky’s blog, appropriately named: Delicious Days. Over four years ago, Nicky kindly asked me to share our family recipe, and she and her boyfriend Oliver did an amazing job of photographing step-by-step instructions and now the tutorial is there — forever documented so you can make them too. Anyone feeling adventurous?
