Binging with Babish: Tamales from Coco

  • Loading...
  • Published on:  Tuesday, February 27, 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.I've been nominated for a Shorty Award!

    I'm a little disappointed you didn't make at least 7 dozen, but I see that your mom didn't trick you and your whole family into coming over for lunch and then placing you into a tamal assembly line.

    100 subs with no videos Oh my god, yes, please..... I love Asian food! I live down the street from 100 Asian restaurants (right part of town), but still not the variety of when I went to Singapore (I would hit the mall at Bugis Junction and get BBQ quail eggs, arabiki sausage, kimchi dumplings and whatever else was calling my name... which is why Americans are fat and not Asians, who will get one item and call that their meal).

    Protip I learned from my mama: add some of the chili paste you made into your masa to give it some flavor. And you could use different flavored mantecas or instead of water use broths. Cooking is amazing.

    Trying not to wake up Rashid by using a spice grinder, then uses a blender.

  • hydrocodOWNED  1 years ago

    when I make tamales with my mom we literally use the same ingredients you're using, but in the region of Mexico that we're from (Zamora, Michoacan) our masa is not white: we add a little of the 'spice paste' into the masa and we knead the dough for like 45 minutes straight. I'm not sure what region of Mexico your tamales are from, but if you put that much lard, they're 100% legit; THIS is cultural appreciation so it's a double thumbs-up for me.

  • I love Mexican food in my area of Texas there is a Mexican restaurant on almost every street

    isn't trying to make the best food from any culture considered appreciation? granted it's because you have a genuine love for the food.
