Growing up in Southern California I have learned to LOVE and enjoy tamales. I have had a desire to learn how to make them and needed a place to start. I was lucky enough to come across Global Foods Online.

I was very excited to learn that they had an awesome tamale making kit. With most of the essentials you need to make tamales. The kit comes with; a 12-quart Tamale Steamer with built-in steaming rack — IMUSA brand 1 package Dried Corn Husks — Palenque brand (5 ounces) 1 Tamale Masa Spreader — Más Tamales brand, 1 bag Masa Harina Golden Corn Flour — Bob’s Red Mill brand (1 pound 8 ounces), 1 can Salsa Verde — Herdez brand (7 ounces) and 1 can Salsa Ranchera — Herdez brand (7 ounces).
We decided to make the Green Chile and Cheese Tamales from the Global Foods Online website. I did have to make a small change to the recipe since my husband is vegetarian we used vegetable stock instead of chicken stock. The recipe was easy to follow and fun to make. Using the masa spreader made the process so much easier. Overall I was very impressed by the great products and items that came in this kit.
