Pollo Verde Tamales

Chicken and Green Sauce Tamales

These simple and traditional tamales are always a big hit with my guests. Sometimes I will add some vegetables like potatoes, carrots, peas, squash, and tomatoes to the filling along with the chicken. Either way is good. There is no sauce needed for this variety, but if you prefer it that way, make twice the amount of the Salsa Verde.

24 corn husks plus extra for the steamer

Green Sauce (see page 114)

2 pounds (about 4 cups) chicken from Oven-Roasted or Rotisserie Chicken (see page 44), or boiled chicken, diced in 1/2-inch cubes

Basic Whipped or Beaten Masa (see page 37)

1. Soak the corn husks to make them pliable (see Wrappers and Ties, page 16).

2. Mix the sauce with the cubed chicken.

3. Spread the masa about 3.8 inch thick on the smooth side of the corn husks to cover the widest two-thirds of the husk to within 1.2 inch of each side (see Spreading the Masa, page 18).

4. Place 2 to 3 tablespoons of the filling in the center of the masa about 1.2 inch from the bottom edge (the widest part).

5. Fold one side of the husk over to meet the masa on the other side, roll up, and then fold the tail (see Wrapping and Tying, page 20).

6. Place upright in a preheated steamer pot or arrange on their sides, leaving room for the steam to circulate (use the extra husks to cover the tamales in the steamer).

7. Steam for 1 to 11.2 hours, or until the masa has firmed somewhat and pulls away from the husk easily.

Makes 24 to 26 medium-sized tamales.

    He sounds like a tool... from what I have heard about him, that is. *she shortly hugs you back.* Val will get over him. Eventually. Just wait... all it should really take is a month. And, thanks. ^~^ *she sighs.* If things become awkward between us, that would suck...

    "I don't think she'll ever forget about him. The way she was talking about him showed me how much she loves him." He shrugs. "And it's fine, Storm. Really." He smiles softly and hugs you. "I don't want things to be awkward or anything. You're a really nice girl."
