Tamales - Is lard necessary plus...

JoLi | Nov 28, 2006 09:01 PM

I am going to venture and making this tamale recipe: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/beef-tam...

Question is, is 3 cups of lard really necessary? Do you have other healthier alternatives? Also if lard is necessary, where do I get it? Is it only available homemade?

Sorry for the 20 questions, but not really sure where to start.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
