Texans make a BIG deal about cowboy boots, football, their friendly Southern hospitality and the great food in Texas. Big is the Texan way. Have you heard of Texas style tamales? Are Texas style tamales too small for Texas? Do they go against the grain of the second largest state of the nation? Not at all, great and delicious food is what Texans make a ruckus about. Those other tamales, the “big fat” ones, are mostly masa, dough made out of corn. All that masa from these fat tamales absorbs the flavor and moisture of the filling and somewhere embedded in it is a smidgen of filling that is now dry. Thus you have a large tamale with “smallness” of spicy aroma and delicious Mexican flavor. Texans went about fixin’ tamales so that they would be big in authenticity and flavor.
Texas style tamales are proportioned evenly from the masa to the meat filling, so that when they are bitten into, both masa and filling are taken in at once. The tasty masa does not dominate, instead it compliments the delicious savory filling. Texas style tamales are big in delicious Mexican cuisine.
