Description

Put a twist on the traditional tamale with this recipe for Swiss Chard Tamales. These savory tamales have diced onion, garlic, and swiss chard strewn throughout the masa mixture. Add a slice of panela queso and roll in the corn husks and then steam for a 40 minutes. You will know the tamales are finish when they are easily separated from the corn husk. Serve with rice and beans and, of course, plenty of your favorite salsa on top.

Ingredients

  • corn husks
  • 250 grams butter
  • 1/2 onions (finely chopped)
  • 1 clove garlic, fine chop
  • 1 bunch swiss chard (chopped)
  • 1 kilogram dough (tortilla, use masa flour and follow the instructions on the packet)
  • salt
  • 100 grams queso panela (sliced, or ricotta cheese)

Directions

  1. Soak the corn husks until soft. Pat dry.
  2. Cream the butter using an electric mixer.
  3. Separately, mix the onion, garlic, and Swiss chard.
  4. Add the dough to the butter and mix. Add plenty of salt as it will be absorbed while cooking.
  5. Using a wooden spoon, add the Swiss chard.
  6. Open the corn husks. Add the tamale masa and a slice of cheese.
  7. Close the corn husks.
  8. Steam for 40 minutes. The tamales are ready to serve once they easily separate from the husk.
