Volume of Chicken broth please!
August 30, 2015

Would someone please tell me how much liquid volume is represented by the "3 cans of chicken broth"? I have seen several sizes of can, and lately, most seems to come in a paper container. Cans is just not an accurate volume of measure! Cups, liquid oz. milliliters etc. would be far more useful! I want to try this wonderful recipe!
Great idea, especially if you wanted to eliminate the lard or oil that is traditionally in a tamal.
Cans is not an accurate unit of measure, unless you know the size of the can!
