    I would make this it sounds yummy. I LOVE tamales!
    This recipe could easily be halved. And extra portions could be refrigerated in individual dishes for easy leftovers (or frozen!) It's not that hard. Even for a senior ;-) J/K - 4/15/08

    I will be adding some corn to this next time I make it and a can of diced tomatoes so it won't be on the dry side, but it was still excellent! - 5/6/08

    Wish these recipes could be made for just one or two people. I never serve 8 or 16. I am a senior who lives alone. Geee...why is it that everything has to be made harder for us! - 4/11/08
