My father LOVES tamales; probably one of his top 5 favorite foods in the world. I love cooking (duh, otherwise I wouldn't be in this topic). So, I went to a cooking class all about tamales last night, took home a few pounds of leftover masa, and wonderful timing, parents are coming for dinner on Saturday night.

Now I'm torn on what tamales to make! All of the sauces are homemade, and I've pretty well perfected my recipes (she says modestly).

1 - Pork with salsa verde/tomatillo salsa
2 - Pork with pasilla chili sauce
3- Chicken with mole
4- Chorizo, roasted poblanos & goat cheese (haven't made this before but had it in a restaurant a few weeks ago and almost swooned it was so good)

Considering that 2 tamales is probably plenty for a meal for this group, along with a salad or something light, making 4 varities is going way overboard. DH suggested I choose only 2 and I'm really struggling! Halp! :)
