That looks so yummy! Thanks for posting the recipe! I am excited to try it. So, where do you get tamales? I have never cooked with them and I actually don't exactly know what they are.

I bought my tamales at Smiths but you can also get them at Macy's. I think I tried Walmart but they don't have them. I believe they are located by the frozen burritos. It's really easy and yummy. Oh... and costco sells them too. :)
Tamales are wrapped in a corn dough with meat inside.
