Mini Tamalada

After a trip to La Esquinita, Becka and I decided to make tamales. In Mexico, a tamalada is a tamale making party that's similar to an assembly line. Everyone pitches in. Although we were far short of an assembly line, we worked well together and produced some very nice tamales. The filling consisted of black beans, onions, achiote, habanero, and, of course, masa. We steamed them for about an hour and fifteen minutes before digging into this wholesome feast.
