Preparation

  1. Soak Corn Husks

    Soak corn husks in warm to hot water for 15 minutes or until soft.

    • 12 Corn Husks
  2. Prepare Dough

    Mix broth and salt in a bowl. Slowly add P.A.N. White Corn Meal, stirring constantly with a whisk or with your hands until the mixture is homogeneous. Set aside and rest for 5 mins.

    • 3 1/3 cups, or chicken Vegetable Stock
    • 2 1/2 tsp Kosher Salt
  3. Prepare Filling

    Slice bacon. Heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Add bacon and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until crispy. Cut the tomatoes into medium dice and combine in a bowl with the cooked bacon. Reserve arugula for when the tamales are ready to be served.

    • 10 slices Bacon
    • 2, medium Red Tomatoes
    • 2 cups Baby Arugula
  4. Assemble Tamales

    Pat dry the soaked corn husks with a kitchen or paper towel. Place corn husks on a flat surface, working one husk at a time. Add 1/3 cup of corn dough into each husk. Spread the dough evenly, leaving about 2" space at the bottom (the wider end of the husk).

  5. Add Filling

    Spread 2 tablespoons of filling in the center of the dough. Fold one side of the husk over the filling and repeat with the other side. Lastly, with the seam side up, fold the husk to close.

  6. Steam

    Steam tamales over boiling water for 30 minutes.

  7. Serve

    Remove from heat and allow to cool for 15 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
