I prefer the tamales that I make at home. They are fresh and that makes a huge difference in the tamal dough. This tamal has my own twist. It’s definitely not a traditional tamal but it is delicious. I added to sweet corn because I like adding natural ingredients to enhance the flavor. You can either use hominy if you want your dough a little more savory or sweet corn if you don’t mind having a sweet and savory tamal. In my opinion both works, it just depends on what you prefer.
The filling is also really tasty. It has tomatoes and chipotle that give the sauce unique and delicious flavors. The best part is that if you have leftovers you also have another meal ready. I might actually make the filling separate again. That filling would be perfect for some arepas or tacos.
