Ingredients

10 servings
  • 250 grams of lard (for the masa)
  • 500 grams of Corn masa mix for tamales (for the masa)
  • 1 Cup of chicken soup (for the masa)
  • 1 teaspoonful of baking powder (for the masa)
  • 1 teaspoonful of Salt (for the masa)
  • 1 teaspoonful of black pepper (for the masa)
  • 1 liter of Water
  • 500 grams of green tomato
  • 5 Serrano cpeppers
  • 1 clove of garlic without a shell
  • 1/4 of onion
  • 3 spoonfuls of oil
  • 2 pinches of Salt fine
  • 1 pinch of black pepper milled
  • 1 boneless chicken breast cooked and crumbled.
  • 10 corn leaves for the tamal soaked in water.

    Preparation

    For the masa, soften the butter with the blender for 5 minutes.
    Add the chicken broth to the flour little by little until it forms a masa. (Take care that you do not get it too watery)
    Add the masa to the butter little by little and mix. Add the baking powder and season. Set aside.
    For the sauce, add the water to a pot and place on medium heat, add the tomatoes, garlic and onion and cook for 10 minutes. Remove the water and grind perfectly in the blender.
    Heat the oil in a pot at medium, add the sauce, cook for 5 minutes and season. Set aside.
    Take a corn leaf, add two large spoons of the masa, spread it well, add a spoonful of sauce and a spoonful of chicken.
    Close the corn leaf perfectly and fold it from bottom to top. Tie it shut with a piece of the leaf so that it does not unfold. Continue until the masa is finished.
    Add water to a steamer, arrange tamales and cook on high heat for 55 minutes or until cooked.
