    Buster's friend's Note:

    This Deep South tamale recipe from The Times-Picayune uses the cornmeal dough around the filling I am more accustomed to. From The Times-Picayune - "This New Orleans-style tamale is similar to Delta tamales. It was originally sent in by a reader in Chalmette." Anyone who can let me know about the right kind of paper wrapper please Zmail so I can get it right by the time it gets cold enough to make these boogers.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    tamales

    Units: US | Metric

    Tamale Filling

    Cornmeal Dough

    Sauce

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Put 150 to 180 tamale papers in water. Put in one at a time, sink it and add another until all are submerged. Set aside.
    2. 2
      Thoroughly combine all ingredients for meat mixture. Roll into finger-sized logs (approximately 150 to 180). Set aside.
    3. 3
      Combine cornmeal and salt with shortening, blending well with your hands. (The dough should be dark yellow and adhere easily to the outside of a meat log; if not, add more shortening.) Enclose each meat log in the cornmeal dough; place on a paper and roll halfway up; then tuck in one side of the paper and finish rolling.
    4. 4
      Cover the bottom of a large pot with chili powder. Add a row of tamales and sprinkle top with chili powder; then add another row, facing in the opposite direction, and sprinkle top with chili powder. Continue in this fashion until all of the tamales are layered in the pot.
    5. 5
      Pour cans of tomato sauce on top; then add water until all tamales are covered. Wait a few minutes (because water will soak into the layers) and pour in additional water until tamales are covered again. Bring to a boil and cook on high for 5 minutes; then reduce heat and simmer for 45 minutes.

      This is a recipe I used many years ago, but forgot exactly how to do. I have used this recipe and used the hot tamale wrappers sold by the pack in most grocery stores
