"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

This is a recipe my hubby found from @ our local grocery store (HEB), who prepares their own amazing Tamales. He made it for Thanksgiving & it was one of the first things gone. Try it, it's different & amazing!
