I steamed the tamales, and while they were in the steamer I made big flour tortillas on the lid of my 14-inch cast iron skillet. I then wrapped the tamales in the tortilla, tied it closed with a bit of the corn shuck from the tamale, and deep fried it.
I thought it would be a big failure but when I ate it with home-made salsa and serrano pepper paste, it was pertty darn good! I made five more and we had them for supper tonight. The tamales were of a size that one was a meal, so we have a couple of leftovers that are going in the fridge, and we will see how they are, reheated, tomorrow.
One of those along with some sauce made from chili run through a blender, some spanish Rice, and maybe some refried beans, and you would have a meal fit for company!
