Make your own delicious tamale rolls with this recipe for a Mexican inspired Tamal Roll. These steamed rolls can be filled with whatever filling you so desire. Cheese, beans, poblano chiles, shredded pork, the choice is yours. Cooked in the steamer for an hour, these Tamal Rolls are moist and the flavors from the filling pervade the soft dough while it steams. This recipe uses a kitchen towel to roll the tamales, but you can also use the more traditional corn husk. Serve with Mexican rice and beans.

Ingredients

  • 200 grams butter
  • 1 kilogram dough (tortilla, use masa flour and follow the instructions on the packet)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 orange
  • poblano chilies (in strips, optional)
  • cheese (optional)
  • beans (cooked, optional)
  • cream (optional)
  • sauce (optional)

Directions

  1. In a bowl, beat the butter.
  2. Once fluffy, add the dough and continue beating.
  3. Add salt and orange juice.
  4. Wet a kitchen rag, which will be used to make the roll.
  5. Place the rag on a flat surface and spread the dough on top.
  6. Add a layer of the desired filling (poblano chili strips, cheese, or beans).
  7. Using the rag, roll the dough. Close both ends with strings. Be careful to stretch the kitchen rag to avoid creases on the roll.
  8. Cook in a steamer for at least 1 hour.
  9. Remove the kitchen rag while the roll is still hot.
  10. Slice and serve with cream and sauce (optional).

I had never tried cooking a tamal like this. It steams very well in the rag.You can use corn husks to make this as well. They add flavor to the masa that the rag won't. If you do use the rag, then make sure it is a clean one with no dyes in it that could be passed on to the food.
