Personally, I don’t like pork. So I fill these with beef, chicken, beans, peppers and onions, or whatever. At thanksgiving I like to fill them with roasted turkey and top them with gravy and cranberry sauce.
” If you don’t like tamales, then there must be something wrong with you. This New Mexican treat is a favorite among just about every New Mexican, with an addition to many other traditional dishes served here in New Mexico. Ingredients 1 6-ounce package dried corn husks Filling 1½ pounds pork loin 1 medium onion, chopped

I’m doing a combo of two recipes tonight. Plus a half. Im making these brussel sprouts tacos with creamy avovado sauce, but instead of black beans, Im using red lentils as in this Red Lentil Tacos recipe
AND, I’m adding some browned ground taco-seasoned turkey.
This insanely delicious tamale filling is also one of the easiest—fruity roasted poblano peppers paired with strands of melted mild Oaxacan cheese. It’s a minimal combo that delivers a lot of flavor within a light and tender tamale dough.
Navajo Tacos are a favorite of mine. I pile them high with beans and veggies, and sometimes ground beef. They are a fried bread, tho, so not much healthyness. Still… so good. Once in a long while, and with lots and lots of veggies… 🙂
