International » South Texas Pork Tamales
Tamales are essential and diverse in many cultures throughout Latin America, made sweet or savory and often prepared and served in and around holidays. In Amanda Escamilla's hometown in South Texas, she grew up eating savory spiced pork-filled tamales. To make tamales takes time, patience and at least a few good friends or family members to help in the production. Serve with Amanda's creamy Tomatillo-Avocado Salsa. A labor of love that's well worth the effort.
