Even though I am half Chilean / half Mexican, I hardly learned to cook authentic cuisines from each country. Since I married 16 months ago, I decided that I would try looking for recipes online that sounded familiar to foods I had either in Mexico or in Chile.
One of my latest tests was making Northern tamales about a 2 months ago. I decided after making them that I would only make them for special occasions because the whole process took 4 hours! My hubby took the opportunity to request them for his upcoming birthday in November, that is how good these tamales were!
I thank this website for having a great demonstration for making tamales. Here is the finished product.
