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.

      You never turn down abuela's tamales or else you're a malcriada. That question wasn't a question, it was a statement.

          i would just cut down on the spices or use a more mild but similar tasting type of pepper.

              Idk man that looks like a lot of mass to meat ratio. Maybe lighter on the masa or beat it a little less and add more meat.

                When you make tamales you get up at 6 at go to sleep at midnight.
                Tamales are not a joke.

                            He could have used the sauce and juices from the pork into the masa instead of the water or chicken stock if he wanted

                                      Okay your lard is wrong all wrong you didn't season it properly the tamales are not meant to be that color is supposed to be a kind of dark yellow or light brown

                                                          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.
