How to Make Tamale Bites
Make these tasty bites for an easy holiday hors d’oeuvre or Mexican fiesta snack
Mexican tamales are a delicious holiday tradition, yet the homemade version can be quite an undertaking. These little bites take the same ingredients and flavors and transform them into an easy finger-food that party guests will love. The masa harina dough and super-savory pork filling are cooked in a muffin tin for perfect portioning. Top each bite off with chopped cilantro, crumbled cotija cheese, a squeeze of lime, and a drizzle of hot sauce for some added color and flavor. The result is a great appetizer for any time of year, whether for a holiday party, Cinco de Mayo celebration, or a Latin-themed fiesta.
