Tamales suck!

Today was the first time I tried making tamales and I don’t know why, but they just suck.

I probably didn’t soak the husks long enough, they just wouldn’t fold up nicely or even stay folded. And spreading the dough on the husks was crazy hard for me.

And I ended up using only 3/4ths of the dough and about 2/3rds of the meat.

I didn’t have a nice big steamer basket and the one I used was much to small for how many tamales I made. They kept sliding off.

I don’t think I’ll ever make tamales again.

They are steaming and I sure hope that they taste good when they are done.
