Delicious Masa recipe!!
Really delicious masa recipe! I used half of a cup less of water because it was to moist. I make roast and red salsa for the filling. Perfect!

Review for Chicken Tamales - Mexican Recipe
I love Tamales, but this recipe is great for 2 reasons: 1) No LARD makes for a delicious, non-greasy tamale. 2) Flavorful Masa with just the right consistency! ENJOY :)
