March 23rd National Tamale Day

March 23rd National Tamale Day

Boy oh boy, here’s a day I bet you have been waiting for… National Tamale Day. Doesn’t it seem like we just had a National Tamale Day like a year ago!?! A tamale is a corn dough, called a masa, that can be stuffed with nearly anything you can think of. Any type of meat, vegetable or fruit goes into a tamale where it is generally heated and served as a meal or a snack. Interestingly the tamale can be either corn or a banana husk. The husk is discarded, or used as a plate.

How to celebrate – Make some tamales for dinner tonight. Visit Mexico. Serve with a sweet or savory sauce.
