Binging with Babish: Tamales from Coco

  • Published: 27 February 2018
  • Pixar's latest laser-guided annihilator of heartstrings, Coco, starts off in the sunny Mexican town of Santa Cecilia, where 12-year-old Miguel's abulea does two things very well: staving off music of any kind, and slinging tamales. These little packets of south-of-the-border love can be tricky and time-consuming, but make for the perfect Oscar party snack next week when we watch Coco inevitably lose the trophy to Boss Baby.

    *If you leave your pork to marinate overnight, be sure not to leave it in foil and use an enamel or glass vessel instead.

                                            hahaha "tamale dough" is a dead give away that this is a white boy trying too hard, but sweet of you to try. that pork filling isn't really authentic, but intriguing. It's called masa by the way.
