Homemade Tamales - first timer

Ace_Mclean | Dec 7, 2006 03:59 PM

I've seen a number of recipes for tamales, and I'm sure there are other threads about them here. But I'm wondering what experience all you chow-hounders have.

Is it really that hard to do yourself?

What kind of meat is the best and what would be most authentic? How much do they really vary from one country to another?

Got a link to a reliable recipe? Any tips for a first timer besides low expectations?

What to serve with the tamales?
