Tamales: Fast and Delicious Mexican Meals (Hardcover)

Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now


A cookbook for making delicious, inventive, and fast tamales using time-saving tips and tricks that simplify the prep-intensive traditional process.
     Tamales are a Mexican favorite, beloved year-round as well as at Christmas, when they are traditionally made. While making tamales with a large group of people over a few days in the traditional way can be fun, it's no longer necessary to go old world to enjoy these delicious treats. Alice Guadalupe Tapp, author of Tamales 101 and owner of Tamara's Tamales, has worked her tamale magic to turn this time-consuming process on its head by paring it down to 3 to 4 steps that can be done in as little as 45 minutes using time-saving tips, products, and tools such as your freezer. All 60 dishes in the book are naturally gluten free, and include both classic tamale recipes--such as Chicken Sinaloa, Red Chile Beef, and Mixed Vegetable tamales--and novel recipes--such as Chorizo and Egg, Bone Marrow, and dessert tamales. With this book, tamales can be enjoyed as an everyday meal option as well as a celebratory treat.
