I really need to learn how to make my own tamales. In the meantime, we love buying THESE ones:
Microwaved tamales (package contains six) three at a time. Wrapped three in a paper towel and set to 2 minutes (or whatever the package says). Covered in some canned herdez green spicy salsa, and pickled jalapenos.
There was some left over rice in the fridge, so I sauteed with a can of diced tomatoes to make a quick homemade Spanish rice. Added chili power, and spices to taste. Spinach salad with veggies for full nutrition.
