Tamale is a great dish. It is a dish which is common in Latin America and South America. Many of those countries have their own version of tamale recipe. Some of them cook it in banana leaf and other cook it in corn husk. I would compare a tamale to a warm bowl of chili eaten on a cold winter day. It is comfort food all the way. I found a great recipe on King Arthur Flour website called “Tamale Pie”. Super simple to put together.
