Looking for a hot tamale that is NOT southwestern style, hopefully one using ground beef and hot pork sausage. Any East Tennesee hot tamale makers out there?
I too, hope someone has good recipes for this. gengenz.
If you know what you want in them why not experiment and make your own filling?
Is this putting hot pork sausage in tamales a regional thing or do you just like sausage?
I think it's regional although I do like hot pork sausage. I went ahead and made hot tamales yesterday but even though I kept tasting and adding I will add more chili powder and cayenne when I make them again....and I will!!! It seems most of the recipes I have seen here and on line are definately more southwestern or the delta area. I will try the shredded pork roast at some point after I get more proficient at assembling them. But for right now I want to "fine tune" the ground beef/sausage mixture.
If you haven't seen ruthieg's thread on "Pork Butts" on the HF, check it out. At some point I will try that method.
